Health driven

Of consumers asked, 20 percent said they expected to reduce their meat intake in the future – and the main factor was to improve their health.

The market study was conducted by the Agricultural Economics Society (AES).AES claims the increase in popularity is not just consumer-led, and that large retail chains are developing their own plant-based product ranges.

Growth

Earlier this month, research from the vegan and vegetarian food app HappyCow saw the Czech Republic fair in the top three for having the most vegetarian-friendly restaurants per population size in Europe.

Expats.Cz claims there has been a surge in the country’s restaurants favoring meatless menus over the past four years.

Reports conducted by the Czech Vegan Society last year predicted an increase in plant-based diets – showing 30 percent of people were planning to consume more plants.It also noted 45 percent of respondents believed animal agriculture was negatively affecting the planet.

Rise across Europe

More vegan food has become readily available across Europe in recent years, from Burger King’s expansion to the Beyond Meat production facility which opened in the Netherlands this year.

Statistics from The Vegan Society show a skyrocket in vegan food and drink businesses across Europe between 2016 and 2019.
