Today is World Vegetarian Day. But how many vegetarians are there anyway and in which countries is the vegetarian lifestyle represented most?
I took a look online and did some research.
Unfortunately, for the Asian and African countries I couldn’t really find any proper numbers. Other than that, the graphs give us a little overview on how many vegetarians there are worldwide. The number of vegetarians worldwide is estimated to be 1 billion!
In Germany the number is rising quickly and the number of vegans even more so. At the moment there are 800,000 vegans in Germany and the number has been rising exponentially.
I am excited to see what is going to happen in the next few years! The vegan food selection is getting better and better, vegan cookbooks have found their way to the bestseller lists and many vegan restaurants have opened.
Isn’t that great? 🙂 What do you say about these numbers?
