With Veganuary in action once again these supermarkets can expect an increase in search demand based on the research, Aldi for example can expect to receive over 6,000 searches in January, whilst Tesco can expect around 4,000.
If we compare what search volume was recorded in January 2021 vs the average we can see some clear spikes in demand for vegan food.
With Veganuary becoming more and more popular each year we may expect this increase to be even more in 2022.
