The Swiss chocolatiers, who know how to celebrate festivities, have released their much-awaited plant-based chocolate line in the UK. After the ranges’ roaring success in Germany with flavours of Cookies and Hazelnut, we’re thrilled to try it – and just in time to make an appearance in stockings up and down the country.

2. Venus Williams Launches Plant-Based Protein Shake Brand

Veg Out Mag puts it well when they say ‘There are plenty of vegan protein shakes on the market, but how many of them are crafted by a 4x Olympic Gold Medalist and one of the most decorated [...] athletes of all time?’. Exactly! It’s no secret that the plant-based movement amongst professional athletes is growing rapidly, we’re just thrilled that there are products for us regular folks to try as a result. 

3. Supermarket’s Vegan ‘Pigs in Blankets’ Captures Attention

High-street supermarket, Morrisons, festive vegan dish has picked up media attention this week. They’ve launched a plant-based ‘no pigs in blankets’ as part of their seasonal range and the internet has blown up over it with heated debate. This side is made from a chickpea and jackfruit sausage wrapped in a streaky pastry blanket. We think it sounds delicious, but will it be part of your Christmas dinner this year? (Or, perhaps like us, you’ll be trying it even sooner)

Since 2016 the number of vegans living in Germany has doubled to a whopping 2.6 million, which equates to around 3.2% of their population and growing. The stats come from food group Veganz, who also note that the ‘flexitarian’ populations of the European countries they surveyed are growing rapidly too, stating that sustainability and environmental reasons at mostly the root of these lifestyle changes. We love to hear statistics like these, and love sharing them with you even more!
