Meaty matters

You can't move for vegan food launches, whether it's Greggs with its new Vegan Steak Bake or KFC with its Vegan Burger. And new research from Mintel reveals that over the past two years, the number of Brits who have eaten meat-free foods has shot up from 50% in 2017, to 65% in 2019. Meanwhile, sales of meat-free foods have grown by 40% from £582m in 2014 to an estimated £816m in 2019. And such is the popularity of meat-free food that sales are expected to be in excess of £1.1bn by 2024.
