Happy World Vegan Day 2018 from us here at Smylies! Since 1994, World Vegan day has been celebrated on the 1st November every year.

The word ‘vegan’ was originally derived from the word ‘vegetarian’, with people adopting the vegan lifestyle steering clear of all meat and dairy products. This is as well as any makeup and clothing that contains produce that has come from an animal.

World Vegan Day started as a way of commemorating the 50th anniversary of the UK Vegan Society and since then, veganism has become widely popular over recent years with The Vegan Society discovering there are 600,000 vegans in Great Britain in 2018.

As we export food and drink worldwide here at Smylies, we understand it is important that we cater to everyone.

Why has the vegan lifestyle become so popular?

With big celebrity names such as Will.I.Am and J-Lo joining the vegan lifestyle, is this way of life a healthier choice?

Vegan diets often contain fewer saturated fats, meaning they are more aware of healthy foods. In turn, they consume less processed food, all of which reduces their risk of heart disease.

If you’re considering removing meat from your diet, plant foods are also easier on your digestion, and with the consumption of extra vitamin c and consequent collagen, you may find your skin starts to improve.

From an environment perspective, a plant-based diet requires less energy and farmland. So, if you’re thinking of supplying vegan-based products to your customers, start importing with Smylies!
