During 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has sparked up some debate about how our use of animals in food is not just bad for the animals, it’s bad for the environment. Many argue that by living a vegan lifestyle, we’re reducing the need to rely on animals as a food source, which can ultimately lead to the spread of disease, inadvertently of course. This combined with people having more time to research, explore and cook at home has meant that becoming vegan is now a truly mainstream lifestyle choice. As a result, more and more people have been looking for ways to upgrade their vegan diet to include foods that they used to enjoy, but on an animal free basis, causing the sale of vegan chocolates and other luxury treats to surge.
Not only that, but more non vegans are turning to trying vegan treats simply because they are inquisitive to find out more about them, in the pursuit towards living a healthier lifestyle themselves – don’t forget, our vegan chocolates aren’t just for vegans!
