A recent Mintel study has revealed that half of Brits limit their meat intake or don’t eat meat, with 49% limiting their meat intake or not eating meat at all, up from 41% in 2020.

Manchester Vegan Festival is set to provide inspiration for those thinking about reducing their meat intake or going vegan, as well as those who already have.
