A new study has seen Bristol top a global list as the most popular city in the world for veganism.
Researchers from Chef’s Pencil – a website where professional chefs share their favourite recipes – used Google Trends data to scour the internet for vegan-related searches made in any language.
Australia beat the UK into second place among the countries, but Bristol topped the world table among cities, followed by Portland, Edinburgh, Vancouver and Seattle.
“Move over Berlin and London… Bristol is the new European and worldwide vegan capital,” say the Chef’s Pencil team.
“Bristol’s concentration of vegan-related searches on Google surpassed every other city in the world.
“While this may come as a surprise to many, the locals know all to well that their city has turned into a vegan Mecca.
“There are lots of vegan restaurants , cafes, vegan hair and beauty saloons and even an active Bristol vegan community.”
