Interest in vegan meat is soaring on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer. In the month of June, shoppers searched for plant-based meat 44,000 times.

Label Insight published the information. According to its website, the company is the ‘most trusted product data source’ in the consumer packaged goods industry. It’s used by more than 30,000 brands, including Google and Walmart, as well as the FDA and USDA.

Label Insight found that vegan-curious Amazon shoppers mostly looked up terms like ‘vegan meat’, ‘vegan burgers’, ‘vegan chicken’, and ‘vegan fish’. Amazon searches for bean burgers jumped up 45 percent in that month, too.

Label Insight made a similar discovery last year in its report Activating Attributes: How Brands Can Avoid Missing Millions.

Looking at data from a range of online retailers, the company found that ‘vegan’ was the second most-searched for attribute in the snack category. It was also the seventh most-searched for attribute across all categories.
