The corporate surveyed 2,037 folks and located that just about half (46 p.c) can have at the very least one vegan amongst their Christmas dinner gathering. Moreover, 39 p.c stated this would be the first time they’re contemplating vegan choices for his or her Christmas celebration, and 74 p.c of respondents stated they’d be on the lookout for plant-based alternate options to cheese this vacation.
“Analysis reveals that vegans and vegetarians look set to make up 1 / 4 of the British inhabitants in 2025, and consuming a vegan eating regimen might be the ‘single greatest approach’ to scale back our environmental impression on Earth,” Lisa Harrison, Senior Model Supervisor for Applewood, stated. “However, we have been shocked by our survey outcomes that present individuals are more and more keen to forgo their conventional Christmas foodie treats for more healthy alternate options even when it makes cooking vegan for the entire household.”
In 2019, Applewood’s mum or dad firm Norseland launched Applewood Vegan (its first vegan cheese) which bought out at 40 p.c of the ASDA shops the place it was stocked inside in the future, necessitating elevated manufacturing of the coconut oil-based cheese. This summer time, the model expanded its plant-based choices with the launch of a vegan model of its jalapeño-spiced Mexicana cheese, together with slices of Applewood Vegan.
