In the past two years, Deliveroo has seen orders of vegan dishes soar by a massive 330%.
Food delivery company Deliveroo has revealed that since World Vegan Day two years ago, orders of plant-based dishes on the site have risen by an impressive 330 percent.
Not only has the platform seen a huge increase of vegan orders, but it’s also seen the number of restaurants catering for vegans on the platform grow by 168% in the past year.
Vegan dishes have been so popular on the platform, in fact, that Bristol-based restaurant Oowee Vegan beat off competition from restaurants across the entire UK to be named ‘Restaurant of the Year’ in Britain’s first-ever Deliveroo Awards.
According to the company, these are the most popular dishes hungry diners have been ordering this month:
PLANT – vegan + Chips from Honest Burgers
Vegatsu (Katsu Curry) from Wagamama
Vegan Fried Chicken Burger from Oowee Vegan
Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs
The Guac Burger from By CHLOE.
Vegan Margarita pizza from Pizza Express
The Halo Burger (Ve) from Halo Burger
In 2018, Deliveroo touted the ‘vegan dirty burger’ as a trend to look out for in 2019, and for 2020 it predicts that dishes containing imitation meats will be the hottest new vegan category.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Joe Groves at Deliveroo commented: “Whether flexitarian or full fledged vegan Deliveroo customers are embracing the growing choices of vegan foods available for delivery.
“No longer resigned to just salads Brits are loving imitation meats, vegan-friendly alternatives and the infamous dirty vegan dishes.”
