Vegan cheese has been added to a handful of restaurant chains in the UK within recent years; Pizza Hut, Pizza Express and Zizzi’s to name a few. The demand for vegan cheese has grown exponentially in line with the amount of vegans in the country and most major supermarkets are now showcasing their own brand of vegan cheese to keep up with the demand. Not only that, supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s are introducing a variety of dairy-free and vegan pizzas to their shelves and major food producers such as Goodfellows are jumping on the plant-based bandwagon. Asda have also revealed recently that they will be adding dairy-free cheese to their in-store Pizza counter and meat substitute producers Oomph will be selling a vegan pizza in Tescos stores very soon.
As flexitarianism is on the rise and people are becoming more open to the idea of trying new foods, it is no wonder that the demand for more vegan options in restaurants and supermarkets is increasing. Only last week we covered the news that British pub chain Green King have introduced a vegan menu to their Hungry Horse restaurants and Café Rouge have also recently introduced a new vegan-friendly menu to their chain of eateries.
We anticipate an even bigger growth in the amount of food that is available to vegans and vegetarians over the forthcoming months and years, with exciting times ahead for the vegans out there that enjoy their grub and simply want to eat food that they enjoyed during their pre-vegan days.
There is no denying it, veganism is becoming easier by the day and plant-based diets seem to be more than just a ‘fad’.
