VEGANISM is growing and becoming mainstream, especially among millennials concerned about the environment, animal welfare and their own health.

Vegans like vegetarians choose not to eat meat. However, veganism is stricter and also prohibits dairy, eggs, honey, and any other items that are derived from animal products, such as leather and silk.

Today, the idea of being vegan is not just about food but also a whole lifestyle that includes the clothes and cosmetics one wears to the vast array of products used on a daily basis.

This shift has seen an unprecedented boom in the industry in recent years, turning it into a multi-billion-dollar business.
