Veganism is a trend that’s set to grow even further in popularity in 2018, according to food delivery service Just Eat.

In fact, Just Eat predicts that veganism will be the food trend of 2018. The website saw a 94pc increase in demand in healthy food ordered in 2017.

Inspired by Instagrammers boasting healthy lifestyles based on plant based diets, the food ordering service says veganism is set to grow.

Irish influencers like Rosanna Davison, and Happy Pear twins Stephen and David Flynn, are vegans.

Meanwhile, the Christmas season kicked off to a phenomenal start on the night of the Toyshow with a 33pc uplift in orders year on year with Just Eat. The most popular cuisine ordered on the night of the Toyshow was Chinese, followed closely by Pizza.

Just Eat Marketing Director, Edel Kinane said: “The results from this year are a good insight into the future consumer trends and while convenience will continue to be key for consumers next year and beyond, we know that they are increasingly looking for more diverse, healthy, gluten free and plant based Vegan options”.
