Veganism has never had a profile in the UK like it does at present.
More and more people are pledging to move to purely plant-based diets for a range of reasons – not least of these being health and concern about the environment.
You know something is afoot when major retailers get in on the act – and, right on cue, Greggs has announced it is launching its first ever vegan sausage roll.
This reflects a trend which has seen an estimated 3.5 million people in the UK – that’s seven per cent – identify as vegan last year.
That is a substantial increase since polling in 2016, which revealed there were roughly 540,000 vegans over the age of 15 living in Britain.
Impressive numbers – but can it be maintained?
This is why we’re asking – is the rise in veganism a fad or is veganism here to stay?
