Ahoy there fellow vegans!
We know that veganism is not just another fad, but a philosophy and a way of living that have been in existence for many years grounded on ethics and we believe it is the future.
It’s apparent that the wider world has started to recognize this undeniable fact. Furthermore, the notion that veganism is a sacrifice that animal lovers make is also fast losing credibility.
It is becoming increasingly clear with research into climate change and global warming that veganism is one of the most sustainable choices moving forward.
When you see traditional dairy-based brands like Baskin Robbins start rolling out vegan options, you know for sure that veganism has gone mainstream.
In addition, we are also seeing a significant amount of venture capital investments into vegan brands that are emerging across the United States and the world.
Let us now dive into this neat list of great plant-based vegan brands that are revolutionizing food as we know it.
Vegan Meat Brands
Livestock (except birds) account for 62% of the mammal biomass on planet Earth. Add another 34% of the human population and you only have a meager 4% of wild mammals .
To give you another perspective, each year approximately 80 billion land animals are slaughtered . These staggering statistics drive home the scale of the global meat and dairy industry. The sad fact is that these billions of farm animals are raised solely for the purpose of slaughter.
Thankfully the following vegan meat brands are making significant dents into this inhumane industry.
Beyond Meat’s line of meat-free plant-based sausages, ground beef and even steak have been a massive hit over the last few years.
