On April 24, 2013, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle commends the Love Food project for creating a new directory geared toward meeting the needs of vegetarians.

According to an article in the Northern Echo, Love Food project, a UK based initiative, is coming up with an online directory of vegetarian options aimed at meeting the needs of those who endorse a vegetarian lifestyle. The project which also upholds the, “production, promotion, use and appreciation of locally grown or reared food in Teesdale, Weardale, the Allen Valleys and Derwentside” plans to compile a list of, “cafes, pubs, restaurants and other eateries which cater for vegetarians, using local produce.” The project also looks to include options for vegans as well as those who have celiac disease.

The vegetarian online food directory is set to coincide with National Vegetarian Week, May 21-27. Love Food Director, Hazel Coppack, explains how the growing demand for listings of vegetarian eateries prompted her to come up with the idea, “I get a number of enquiries from people wanting to know where they can get good quality vegetarian, vegan and coeliac options, particularly using local produce.”

Coppack adds, “We know there are some great places out there and as vegetarian week is coming up, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a directory of eateries from our area on our website – http://www.lovefood.me - so anyone wanting those options have a single point of information.”

Yumi Media representative Justin Maas comments on how the rise of initiatives like the Love Food project represent a growing lifestyle trend, “The Love Food project shows that more and more people want to have the right information that meets their lifestyle needs. An online directory of different eateries can provide people with easy access to relevant information. Companies such as Quorn represent this emerging trend toward satisfying the needs of vegetarians with meat alternative recipes and meals.”
