In this episode with Heather Landex we learned some interesting facts about allergies, and vegans, and the lack of awareness in the hospitality industry, and how it impacts people's lives.
She spoke to the loss of business from restaurants not serving people who are vegans or with allergies.
Working to educate the industry, Heather has also written a book "Inclusive: The New Exclusive" and shares with us why she came up with that title.
