Vegan Food Sales Up By 1,500% in Past Year



Quote:
Vegan food sales are up by a whopping 1,500 per cent in the past year, according to new figures released to coincide with World Vegan Day.

More than half a million people in the UK now say they follow the vegan lifestyle, which is up by 260 per cent in the last ten years, and a third of the population identifies as ‘flexitarian’, which simply means they are cutting down on their meat consumption.

There is a lot of people switching to plant-based alternatives to dairy products, with sales of Alpro Unsweetened Almond Milk have gone up by 2,343 per cent since 2015 – the equivalent of over 265k litres or around 3,300 baths full of this nut based alternative to cow’s or goat’s milk!

This is fantastic news!

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I could write a lot about all the many things wrong with the nonsense headline, "Vegan Food Sales Up By 1,500% in Past Year" but it doesn't really matter: however much veganism is growing it is certainly growing and that has to be a good thing.

I am concerned about the need to keep veganism in the media to enable growth to continue.

To take the climate change example, in 2006/2007 climate change was all in the news and it looked like real change was in the air but since then it's been difficult to keep such a major issue at the forefront of people's minds unless it's topical for some reason.

Veganism has had so many books and movies that it's difficult to see what new one could come up with a new angle. One thing that could help would be something like an openly vegan prime minister or President of a major country, more famous people going vegan, a campaign to get the morality of meat eating into schools. Other things might be some major scandal in the meat industry or something.

Change will still happen without any of that, but it's going to be slow.

Slow is just fine as long as it's happening! It's going to be a bit faster day by day, more people are joining in.

The change is happening and it's all thanks to us. By us I mean everyone that takes action and does something to help animals and the environment.
I'm fairly new to all this but I couldn't be more happy to be part of this change

I am so happy about this, it's notable too.

There are so many more vegetarian and vegan alternatives now then there were when I started five years ago.

It's a slow increase but a steady one!
