The vegan market is growing so rapidly fast. What once was thought to be just a fad is now a mainstream lifestyle choice slowly but surely dominating the globe. In fact, one study suggests that 56% of adults in the UK prioritize vegan items in the grocery. That factored in, you can already bet that the vegan market is bound to be saturated in one way or another. Because of the influx of animal-conscious consumers, so will the rise of more vegan products be evident.
This is precisely why it’s important for us to acquaint ourselves with the goods we buy at the supermarket. What are superb beef patty alternatives we can trust? Are there tasty chocolate vegan brands I can look into? Aside from soy and tofu, what other pork alternatives are there?
Being one of the biggest retailers in all of Europe, we looked around Twitter to check what vegan items are people’s favourites over at Lidl.
