New Food Trend Alert! Flexitarianism grows in Bristol

Most people have heard of vegetarians, vegans and maybe even pescetarians. But a new dietary trend is now emerging, and Bristol is leading the way.

Rosa van Kesteren, the coordinator for Flexitarian Bristol, said: “We just want to start conversations about food. Meat is currently the elephant in the room.
