Veganism is experiencing explosive growth, but until now no investment products have existed
- There are estimated to be 19 million vegans in the US (GlobalData 2017 report – Top Trends in Prepared Foods) with 6% of Americans self-identifying as vegan, a six-fold increase over 2014.
- It also showed that 44% of consumers in Germany now follow a low-meat diet, a 26% increase from 2014.
- Rising veganism stems from the awareness of the impact of meat consumption as well as ethical and sustainable lifestyles being associated with wellbeing and wellness.
- People between the ages of 18 and 34 are three times more likely to be vegan than those over 55 (VRG Poll 2015).
