A number of chains are set to get behind Veganuary this month, including Leon, Handmade Burger Company, Las Iguanas and Zizzi.

Last year, 23,000 people from 142 countries took part in Veganuary, including fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, writer and activist, Jack Monroe and Downton Abbey actor Peter egan, while TV presenter Jasmine Harman took part in 2014. And when model and tattoo artist Kat von D shared her support for Veganuary, she crashed the charity’s website. Amanda Abbongton, star of Sherlock, will be taking part in Veganuary this year, alongside Rebecca Collard, Borrowers actress and daughter of Coronation Street actress, Beverley.

Says Clea Grady, Marketing Manager at Veganuary: “The worldwide rise in veganism may be influenced by celebrities but the number one reason that people give for taking part in Veganuary is to protect animals. Farming is a brutal business. Male chicks are killed at a day old because they aren’t able to lay eggs, unwanted calves are shot, and pigs are locked in crates and treated like breeding machines. Consumers increasingly won’t stomach such cruelty, and are choosing to eat vegan. The trend is all set to continue and food outlets like All Bar One, Pret and Zizzi are absolutely right to make vegan foods a priority.”

Veganuary is sponsored by Ten Acre, Tideford Organics, Pulsin, Fry’s Family Foods and Flora Freedom.
