A significant amount of our menu is vegan or vegetarian and the focus is on those dishes being as tasty as they can be.
And with meat, the emphasis is on serving less but better quality, and using plants to fill the gap.
Leon is committed to meeting the welfare standards set by the European Chicken Commitment for 100% of our chicken by 2026 throughout our European Supply Chain.
We support the work that the Humane League have done in campaigning towards the European Chicken Commitment and encourage them to go even further and work with farmers to help them supply this product in a sustainable way that is also affordable to customers.
We always endeavour to work with and support the most sustainable suppliers and partners and we will continue to work with the Humane League to find a clear and transparent solution to the CO2 and sustainability impact the new method of chicken farming brings, as it becomes commercially available.
We have made great progress with our sourcing in recent years. We source from the UK and already meet a number of the Better Chicken Commitment promises: our chickens are never caged or in multi-tier systems and always have high-quality air on their farms. They have perch-able space, hay bales and other peck-able things to keep them stimulated.
We visit our chicken farms regularly and we know our chickens have room, daylight, and are well looked after. Our sourcing has a low carbon footprint, though we do know the more sustainable option is to increase the number of plant-based dishes on our menu so we’re working on that.
