Vegan Food & Living decided to follow up on their 2019 Big Vegan Survey in order to help companies learn how to serve the community better as well as gaining insights into our fellow vegans too. Insights showed a wide spectrum of data from whether people prefer the term ‘plant-based’ or ‘vegan’ to motivations, lifestyle and shopping habits.

Oatly, Upfield and ProVeg International are some of the big vegan names behind the recent petition to stop Amendment 171 of EU law. The amendment sees the ban of dairy-related terms being used by plant-based alternatives. This extends to products being described as ‘like milk’, ‘buttery’ or even ‘creamy’ if they don’t contain dairy products. The vegan companies hope that by being allowed to continue using these terms it will allow consumers to make more educated and sustainable choices.
