Vegan explosion

Yes, we are vegan (see Advocate From Your Plate™). And so are loads of our followers. They are requesting we do posts on the vegan lifestyle in addition to our recipe posts. We talked it over and said . . . okay, sure, why not? This is a timely moment to start.

Veganism is having a blast – its popularity and adoption continuing to surge at record highs.

Veganism has come a long way: once reserved for peace-loving hippies, interest in a totally animal-free diet is at an all-time high, with celebrities like Jay Z and Beyoncé making veganism cool. Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are all seeing an increase in the number of vegans, and millennials are leading the charge, writes Bijou Concierge.

According to a new study veganism is especially experiencing an explosion of popularity around the world during the current pandemic.

In an article called Top Most Popular Countries and Cities in 2020 published by Chef’s Pencil they reveal:

A year to forget – that’s what 2020 has been so far for so many people, as well as hordes of companies and industries, but not for the veganism movement. Veganism is having a blast – its popularity and adoption continuing to surge at record highs.

Data from Google Trends show that the popularity of veganism is at an all-time high, surpassing the prior all-time high registered in 2019. To put things into perspective, veganism is now twice as popular as it was just five years ago, and it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.

The pandemic has not stopped the rise of veganism but has actually added a bit of fuel to its popularity. Searches for vegan recipes have soared and are still going very strong, although lockdown has ended in most parts of the world. Restaurants have been hit badly, but according to HappyCow, more vegan restaurants have opened than closed during the pandemic. And ImpossibleFoods, one of the top producers of plant-based dishes, has announced record sales.
