The term vegan was once not as famous as today, but is veganism actually growing, or is it just a trend that people are talking about more?

Well, the short answer is β€˜Yes it is growing at a rapid rate. Just how much is it growing is something we’ll see below.

This number peaked in 2020 and is still on an upward trajectory.

Vegan Restaurants are on the rise

We can see a huge rise in vegan options in restaurants in recent years this is partly because of the market reacting to the demand from consumers.

Quorn morningstar farms, Beyond meat, and Impossible foods made it a lot easier for meat-eater to find an alternative option in a fast-food market.

Quorn’s Imposter burger that was added in KFC, Del Tacos Beyond Burritos, White castle’s Impossible sliders, Burger King’s Impossible Whopper, and Carl’s Jr.’s charbroiled Beyond Famous Star are just a few famous options that the western world provides.

Many new restaurants are strictly vegan, like Paperbark in Sydney, Australia, Original Sin in Singapore, The Ravens in California, U.S.A, VΓ€xthuset in Stockholm, Sweden, and many more that can be found here.

You can also find local restaurants, cafes that serve vegan food around the world with Happy Cow. The Vegan industry is on a huge rise and it’s getting easier to find vegan foods around the world.

What to expect?

Veganism isn’t going anywhere, it’s just getting stronger with time. Due to the Covid pandemic, many people have started shifting to a plant-based lifestyle to avoid these zoonotic diseases.

We’ll see a lot more vegans in the future as the population grows and animal farming becomes more and more unsustainable to us.

With the rise of plant-derived meat alternatives, the conversion to a plant-based lifestyle will become a lot easier with time.

People who realize how easy and healthy this lifestyle is will be making the change quickly and stick to it and more and more people are realizing this as time goes by.
