There are now more than 3.5 million people in the UK choosing to follow a vegan diet, therefore the demand to create exciting and tasty plant-based alternatives is higher than ever.
Veganuary's popularity continues to rise, but for many, committing to an entire month of plant-based eating can feel daunting. However with Whole Foods Market’s range of vegan options, from meat alternatives, dairy-free cheese and a wide range of plant-based versions of your favourite foods, you won’t have to stray too far from your much-loved stir fry or breakfast time staple.
This January we have teamed up with Whole Foods Market UK to showcase a range of vegan products to replace your cupboard essentials, everyday necessities and indulgent sweet treats to carry you through Veganuary - because we all need a sweet treat or two.
