Although the term ‘veganism’ was only coined in 1944, the practice of plant-based-only eating has roots that stretch all the way back to ancient times in India and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Today, the number of those turning to a plant-based vegan diet continues to grow rapidly in the UK. In fact, the Vegan Society recently reported that 445,428 people chose to become vegan over the past 12 months alone, with vegans and vegetarians predicted to account for a quarter of the British population by 2025.
