Dominika Piasecka, spokeswoman for The Vegan Society, said: “People now closely associate veganism with health, fitness and wellbeing. You can walk into any supermarket and be greeted by a huge range of vegan-friendly products or walk into any restaurant and be presented with an exciting vegan menu. There has never been a better time to be vegan.

“Vegan products are not exclusively for vegans; in fact, they’re suitable for most diets and religions, and often constitute a safe food option for all. The Vegan Society’s Catering for Everyone campaign is calling for good vegan food on public sector menus every day and offers practical advice to caterers on its website.”
