Veganism has quickly evolved from trend to lifestyle for residents across the UAE. The opening of multiple new dedicated concepts to veganism along with the introduction of separate vegan menus from popular restaurants in Dubai has been a testament to the fact that veganism is in fact here to stay. To further solidify these claims, Deliveroo has shared data on how the wave of veganism has impacted their overall order trends in the UAE to prove that the movement is indeed a lifestyle in a country bustling with global citizens.
Vegan orders on Deliveroo in the last 12 months have increased by 115% which indicates a clear preference and potential growth in the vegan market for the platform.
