Vegan Food Market Growth Fueled by Awareness of Animal Cruelty, Need for Lactose-Free Alternatives

Posted on April 2, 2023

The Vegan Society says the demand for vegan food has grown over 980% in the last decade, as cited in a report by Straits Research in the Washington Post, which attributes much of the growth to the anti-cruelty efforts of organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as well as the 60% of the global population who are lactose intolerant opting for vegan substitutes for dairy products. 

The demand in coming years will be most significant in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Israel, Ireland, Canada, Austria, and Germany, the report said, adding that animal food products consumption has dropped markedly in Sweden and the United States in the past few years.
