Veganism has taken the UK by storm, driven in large part by increased awareness and consideration of climate change, animal welfare and the health benefits of consuming more plant-based food. According to The Waitrose & Partners Food & Drink Report 2018-19, one third of the UK population have a meat-free or meat-reduced diet, with one in eight identifying as vegan or vegetarian.
