Ovolo Group is in ‘Year of the Veg’

3 min read

It was an remarkable transfer in an extraordinary calendar year.

Past year amid the coronavirus pandemic was a tough stretch for hotels and eating places, but in October, on Environment Vegetarian Working day, which is celebrated annually on the first day of that thirty day period, Hong Kong-based mostly Ovolo Group switched all of its inns and dining places throughout Australia and Hong Kong to go vegetarian for the up coming 365 times. 

The only restaurants amongst its portfolio exempt are any that were being already vegan and eschewing all meat, fish, dairy, and eggs.

Casually dubbed the “Yr of the Veg,” the notion came straight from the major: from Ovolo Team founder and CEO Girish Jhunjhnuwala.

“It was a bold go,” claims Jhunjhnuwala, speaking by means of mobile phone from Hong Kong. “But the original responses was favourable and, straight away, the reaction was very encouraging. So even while it was a bold go, we knew it was the ideal go.”

Ovolo Group’s food and beverage director, Vince Lombino, experienced some hesitation at very first.

“We experienced the lockdowns to offer with and the COVID issue, so it was presently a difficult calendar year. I puzzled, did we want to alienate a big demographic? We had to be real looking about our expectations,” claims the 30-year hospitality marketplace veteran, speaking from Australia.

“But we’d just opened one vegetarian cafe and observed that once we got pumping, we were outpacing the relaxation of the marketplace. So we stated let’s do it and do it definitely effectively,” adds the California native.
