The U.K’s top-10 most vegan-friendly cities have been revealed by new research.
In essence, it compared the number of vegan-friendly restaurants and cafés in relation to the size of the population in each city. Given these points, it created the list below.
In light of the growth of veganism, Sustain Health which covered the story, said: “A vegan diet has been popular for a while. It is a trend that continues to grow.
“Maybe you fancy it due to the idea of making a positive contribution to the climate, you think animals are friends and not food, or you think about the benefits for your own health?
“In the past, this often meant eating a limited diet of vegetables, chickpeas, or lentils. But nowadays mouthwatering creations are served.”
Some of the vegan-friendly cities on the list will – without a doubt – be of little surprise to many. For example, Brighton which scooped the top spot on this occasion, often wins plaudits for its meat-free offering.
Conversely, London will be a glaring omission for many. After all, consumer experts at money.co.uk recently crowned London Europe’s most vegan-friendly city in a list.
However, their methodology was different. By comparison, they considered a wider range of metrics. For example, the number of speciality restaurant and the number of speciality takeaway services in a city.
In addition, they analyzed the cost of a classic home-cooked meal for each diet; the cost of energy to cook a homemade meal; and the number of speciality cooking classes.
