According to polling, an impressive 11% of Brits said all of their lunches were vegan or vegetarian already.
A staggering 25% of Brits want to eat more vegan or vegetarian food during their lunch break, according to new research.
Squeaky Bean commissioned a survey of 2,000 UK’s working population to gauge the nation’s lunchtime habits.
It found that 24% of people are eating less meat since the pandemic. The numbers in London were higher with 40% wanting to eat more vegan and 42% more vegetarian food.
In addition, 11% said all of their lunches were vegan or vegetarian already.
