Analysts discovered that Greggs ‘won the battle of the brands’ when it came to new products being discussed, owning a massive 67 percent of product mentions in January.

In addition, according to William Murray PR & Marketing: “McDonald’s and M&S were quick off the mark to announce new vegan-friendly products in January, with vegan Happy Meals and the Plant Kitchen ranges appearing on shelves across the country.

“When it came to brand share of voice, plant-based meat alternatives Oumph and Quorn were the top two most talked about brands over Veganuary, proving the nation’s willingness to adopt plant-based proteins in place of meat.

“This was also true for individual ingredients, with tofu (44 percent) and jackfruit (34 percent) popular choices.”
