VEGANISM IN THE US HAS GROWN 500% SINCE 2014

The Plant-based lifestyle is growing rapidly around and the world, and now we know that six percent of Americans identify as vegan – up from only one percent in 2014 according to a highly regarded industry report released last month.

The report, titled Top Trends in Prepared Foods in 2017 was prepared by research company GlobalData and shows the explosion in veganism over the last 3 years. It cites a growing awareness of the impact of meat consumption amongst consumers who are increasingly looking for more ethically produced and environmentally sustainable foods.

At the same time, beekeepers lost more than 40 percent of their honeybees. That kind of shortage means crop loss and that translates into trouble for the plant-based food chain.
