It's been reported that the number of vegans in the UK quadrupled between 2014 and 2019. In 2019 there were 600,000 vegans or 1.21% of the population. Over the last two years, we've seen further increases.
YouGov tracker data puts the size of the vegan population in Great Britain between 2-3% of the population. This number continues to grow, as is the demand for vegan-friendly products, including confectionery.
Vegan sweets: What you need to know
To some, vegan sweets may seem like a relatively new phenomenon. In reality, they've been around for many years but were difficult to find and often of poor quality. However, with the rise in popularity of veganism, the demand for high-quality and delicious vegan confectionary has also increased significantly, where Vegan All Sorts comes in. You will find the perfect sweet weekend treat with Mega Bags packed with vegan pick n mix and so many delicious baked goods like vegan cookies and gourmet brownies!
Even with the rise of veganism, we're also seeing many non-vegans buying our confectionary too, finding that it tastes considerably better than off-the-shelf sweets from major brands, usually found in supermarkets. Unlike a household name adding a lineup of vegan sweets to a broad collection, our business was built from the ground up here in the UK. We made waves during the pandemic and have continued to grow and scale our offering, the most extensive collection of vegan sweets anywhere online!
