World Vegan Day

1st November 2019
Posted by Aston Avery

In recent years, veganism and plant-based lifestyles have become far more mainstream than ever before, heightened most recently with Lewis Hamilton saying that a vegan diet is the ‘only way to save our planet’.  Mintel valued the plant-based market to be at £740 million in 2018 and is expected to soar to £1.1 billion by 2023 so it is undoubtedly a huge growth area.

This means that this year’s World Vegan Day is perhaps going to be the most topical yet. To mark this.

Aston spoke to Michael Perry a.k.a Mr Plant Geek, TV presenter and gardening expert to discuss world vegan day and also the popularity of all things plant based.
