It’s National Vegetarian Week 2018, a perfect time for devoted Vegans and Vegetarians to celebrate what’s truly great about living meat-free. And also a fabulous opportunity for the wider-public to benefit from the pleasures of meat and dairy alternatives too such as Quorn!
Many people have been taking the plunge in 2018 to switch to a completely plant-based diet. Some supermarkets are releasing cheaper and wider ranges of veggie options. Whilst programmes on TV are telling us where to find them. And with the demand for vegan and vegetarian foods set to increase massively by 2020, it’s an ever-growing market.
People here in the UK are now eating 50% less beef and according to the Mirror, there was a 987% increase in the demand for vegetarian options on the delivery service, Just Eat, in 2017 alone. The UK is literally falling out of love with beef, soya and other dairy products.
In the next 4-6 years, the UK’s vegan market will grow by up to 25%, with dairy products like bread buns, not even containing dairy anymore and your turkey meat inside not even being… well, meat.
Luckily though this doesn’t mean we can’t fine dine! Entrepreneurs and Vegetarians themselves have spotted the gap in the market for meat-free eateries and they’re popping up everywhere, serving up some delicious flavoursome dishes! So, celebrate from the 14th to the 20th May and see what they have to offer from in and around the East Midlands.
