Uber Eats has reported a 23% increase in vegan takeaway orders this January with more people than ever before committing to go vegan for Veganuary.
Uber Eats has revealed that it has seen a 23% rise in vegan takeaways this month, as an increasing number of Brits have taken Veganuary’s pledge to ditch animal products and go vegan in January.
The delivery service has also discovered that the UK’s favourite vegan takeaway dish is falafel, followed by avocado maki in second place, and truffle mac n’ cheese coming in third.
The top five vegan takeaway dishes ordered by Brits this January are:
- Falafel Wraps
- Vegan Sushi Rolls – Avocado Maki
- Vegan Truffle Mac ‘n’ Cheese
- Vegan Burgers
- Vegan Veggie Pizza
Looking at the rise in vegan orders nationally, Uber Eats has found that Edinburgh is the UK’s true ‘vegan capital’ based on the number of vegan takeaway orders received, whilst Belfast is the city least likely to swap meat for tofu.
Speaking about the rise in vegan orders, Head of Marketing for Uber Eats UK & Ireland, Henry Harding, said: “With an increasing number of Brits having committed to Veganuary this year, it is clear that the appetite for delicious vegan meals is on the rise.
“So whether you crave dairy and meat but love to dabble in vegan food, or are a fully committed vegan, we have a fantastic array of wonderful dishes to cater to all preferences”.
Statistics were obtained using Uber Eats internal data, tracking orders from 1st January 2018 to 29th January 2019.
