Vegan and Plant-Based Lifestyle on the Rise
The U.S. has seen a 600% increase in people identifying as vegan in the last three years alone. According to a recent report by research firm GlobalData, only 1% of U.S. consumers claimed to be vegan in 2014. In 2017 that number rose to 6%. Sales of plant-based meats are also on the rise, up 24% from 2017 to 2018, according to the Plant Based Foods Association.
HappyCow was founded in 1999 as a public service to assist travelers and people everywhere find plant-based options and wholesome food. HappyCow is vegan-run, written from a vegan perspective, and staffed by vegans and vegetarians. HappyCow’s CEO Eric Brent said, “When I first became vegan over 28 years ago, I struggled to find vegan food at restaurants. Today, I am amazed that there are over 7000 vegan restaurants listed globally on HappyCow.”
The HappyCow online community has grown to include members from around the world who are passionate about the vegan lifestyle as a healthy, compassionate, and environmentally sustainable way of living.
