Organisers of veganuary have predicted this year that there will be over 50,000 people participating. There are many famous names amongst who have tried vegan diets in the past include Bill Clinton, Anne Hathaway, Beyonce & Jay Z and then there are the fully committed vegans who include Brad Pitt, Ellie Goulding and Gwyneth Paltrow. Kat Von D, an American tattoo artist and model, crashed the Veganuary website earlier this year when she encouraged people to register. The vegan market is rapidly growing with companies such as healther mills VBites, Fry’s and many more which are encouraging you to make the change. Organiser of veganfestival.co.uk explains that ” there is never the need to eat meat or dairy again, because of the options we have available to us now is amazing and is constantly growing”.
There are many companies around the world encouraging veganuary this month such as Pret a Manger expanding into vegan sandwiches amongst other coffee shops such as Caffe Nero and Starbucks. There is also many other companies which provide great vegan options such as the Handmade Burger Co. Although these companies have dairy and meat on the menu it is a point in the right direction that large companies such as this are encouraging veganism.
