Food Matters Live 2020, 13-14 October, Convention Centre, O2 InterContinental


Food Matters Live 2018


Sustainable diets, which are better for the environment and can bring benefits for food security and animal welfare remain on trend - but are they for everyone?

The boom in veganism in the UK, has seen retailers increase their plant-based offerings to keep up with consumers. Vegan Society statistics suggest the number of vegans in Great Britain rose from 150,000 in 2006 to 540,000 in 2016. Celebrity vegans have given the movement a touch of glamour and plant-based diets continue to trend online. But is this something solely for trend-hungry Millennials and the middle classes - or is it something sweeping across the whole of society that would see sustainable nutrition become mainstream?
