Hog’s Braille New Menu Release

Hog’s Breath, Australia’s premier steakhouse, has impressed the vision-impaired community with its introduction of a braille version of the new menu, produced by Vision Australia.

Hog’s CEO Ross Worth said the restaurant group wants to be accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities such as the blind or partially blind.

“We know that the vision-impaired community value the opportunity to be independent and not have to rely on friends or staff to read the menu for them,” said Worth.

Vision Australia General Manager Queensland, Karen Knight, said that braille is one of the key communication tools that allows people who are blind or have low vision to receive and send information.

“We congratulate Hog’s Australia’s Steakhouse on providing a braille accessible menu and creating a more inclusive social experience,” said Knight.

“Being able to independently participate in social activities with their friends and family is very important to the blind and low vision community.”

Ross Worth went on to say that the Hog’s Breath philosophy is all about fun and that applies to everyone in the community.

“We want everyone to have a great dining experience with us, and enjoy our delicious new menu, and to that end we have put many initiatives in place to ensure that’s the case for the disabled community also.”

Hog’s Breath introduced its new menu in April this year.  While the Aussie institution remains a steakhouse at its heart, the Hog’s team noted the increasing appetite for nutritious options and stepped up to the plate with a revamped menu to cater for all tastebuds, including vegetarian and gluten-free, and embracing produce sourced fresh from local farms.
