We’re only six days into 2019 and it already looks as though this could be the year that sees veganism explode even further into mainstream culture.
Over the past two weeks, Greggs the bakers went viral over the launch of their vegan sausage roll, McDonalds announced their vegan Happy Meal, and a record number of people have signed up to Veganuary, pledging to begin their new year by adopting a kind and ethical diet.
And it’s not just high street fast food outlets who are finally realising and meeting consumer’s demands, major supermarkets are also filling their freezers and lining their shelves with delicious ranges of plant-based meals.
With so many cruelty free options now available, there are literally no excuses left for not cutting out animal based products!
