The evidence is stacking up – the vegan movement has never been bigger. Look around you: even if you’re not vegan, chances are you know someone who is or you’ve seen vegan items on the menu at your favourite restaurants.
And vegan eating is set to go even more mainstream.
Globally, Australians are at the forefront of this trend. That’s right – Aussies have the biggest appetite in the world for vegan eating.
This comes as no surprise. Animal-loving Australians are realising that the best way to ensure that animals are no longer subjected to cruel treatment is to vote with their dollars and stop supporting the industries that are exploiting them.
And the top city for vegan searches? It may surprise you to learn that it is Launceston! Closely behind is Hobart, followed by Newcastle, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. It looks like Tasmanians are leading the pack of Australians embracing this cruelty-free trend.
Judging by the most popular related searches, food is at the forefront of people’s minds as they explore the concept of vegan living – “vegan recipes” leads the list of most-searched terms.

More and more high-profile Aussies are also leading by example and choosing to leave animals off their plates, adding to the long list of celebrities who have previously partnered with PETA to speak out for animals.

Vegan Food Is Everywhere
In recent months, we’ve seen numerous restaurants and cafés across the country start offering more delicious plant-based foods, and some have even launched 100 per cent vegan businesses. Even Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium has ditched Cadbury and switched to selling vegan chocolate!
