Hay Hampers is launching a brand new vegan hamper for this coming Christmas season to meet the increasing demand of vegan food in the market.
Simply called ‘A Vegan Christmas’, this hamper contains no dairy, meat, seafood and honey products, making it a suitable gift for vegans.
Evoking the countryside with a blue and green colour theme, this gift basket includes a mix of five savoury snacks; crisps, pickled baby onions, Sicilian crushed olives, Cajun spicy nuts and rosemary breadsticks, plus traditional fruit sweets, crunchy butter-free cookies, organic dark chocolate, green Ceylon tea and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc wine from New Zealand.
According to new figures from the Vegan Society, the number of vegans in the UK has risen 350 percent over the past decade. Some 542,000 people – i.e. more than one per cent of the population – have adopted a plant-based diet, up from 150,000 in 2006. 42 percent of them are aged between 15 and 34.
“The trend is clear,” said Gabriele Da Re, managing director at Hay Hampers. “Plant-based eating is taking the health-world by storm. Veganism is currently one of Britain’s fastest growing lifestyle movements and we at Hay Hampers pay special attention to new foodie trends and we always try to be innovative with our gourmet offer.”
Packed in a glossy reusable carton box, A Vegan Christmas hamper will also be available for purchase on Amazon Prime this year.
