For Vegan Chickpea, Bombay Potato and Sprout Tray Bake
Veganuary is an annual challenge run by a UK non-profit organisation that promotes and educates about veganism by encouraging people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January.
Since the event began in 2014, participation has increased each year with 400,000 people signed up to the 2020 campaign.
A survey conducted by Veganuary revealed that more than a third (36 percent) of non-vegans who signed up planned to stay vegan after the challenge ended, while 20 percent of those said the chief reason for remaining vegan was because they found it easier than expected.
During the 2022 campaign, more than 620,000 people took up the pledge to try a vegan diet, while more than 1,540 new vegan products and menu options were launched. For more information visit www.veganuary.com
