In 2019, research conducted by Roy Morgan found that the trend in vegetarian eating is continuing to grow, with almost a 2.5million Australians now choosing to avoid eating meat. This is around 12.1% of the Australian population, which is reflective of the increasing shift towards plant-based diets across the country.
The number of vegans, however, is uncertain. Vegan Australia estimates that about 400,000 – 500,000 of them across the country. The rise in veganism within Australia is being largely driven by innovation within the food industry.
Since vegan food products and vegan food alternatives are now much more accessible and varied, many more people are turning to veganism. Vegan items have also continually improved in taste and quality, with vegan alternatives to popular meat and dairy products, especially burgers, continuously being launched at some of the most popular food chains throughout the country, such as McDonald’s and Hungry Jack and Grill’d. Since burgers are one of the most popular comfort foods throughout Australia, it is no surprise that food businesses are expanding their burger options to include plant-based options.
As a result of this, many other smaller burger chains have been embracing the new plant-based trends in order to be able to cater to every customer that walks through the door. So, with this comes a rise in the number of vegan and vegetarian burger options. However, with so many options out there, how are you going to know what burgers the best meat alternatives are?
