Given what feels like the sudden explosion of veganism into the mainstream in this past 12 months, it may not be a surprise to you to hear vegan food sales are up by a whopping 1,500 per cent in the past year, according to new figures released by Ocado to coincide with World Vegan Day.

Today is a special day. It’s World Vegan Day (and the start of world vegan month).
For those of you who don’t know, World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans around the world on 1 November. It was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, who was then Chair of The Vegan Society, to commemorate its 50th anniversary. This year, in 2016, The Vegan Society and the terms ‘vegan’ and ‘veganism’ are celebrating their 72nd anniversary.
