The top 10 countries where veganism is most popular have been revealed in a new list.

Chef’s Pencil compiled the list by analyzing Google Trends data, which it describes as a ‘reliable source of big data’, to search interest level for veganism across the world.

It found that searches in the veganism category (including vegan-related searches made in any language) were at an all-time high in 2020.

‘Added fuel to its popularity’

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Chef’s Pencil revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped the rise of veganism but has ‘added fuel to its popularity’.

The organization added that searches for vegan recipes have skyrocketed, and continue to go strong – even though lockdown has come to an end in most parts of the world and many restaurants have re-opened.

Search data showed that countries whose cuisine traditionally is greatly meat- and dairy-based are seeing a big rise in veganism, said Chef’s Pencil, which it concluded means that ‘veganism is stronger than ever’.
