VIDEO: Veganuary sparks increase in attendees at annual food festival at Grub Manchester

Manchester venue Grub hosted a special plant-based food festival dedicated to Veganuary.

Veganuary was set up in 2014 to encourage people to eat a plant-based diet for 31 days, and last year the scheme had more than 600,000 people sign up with the non-profit who originally set up the scheme. 

Plant-based foods have become increasingly available with fast-food chains like McDonalds and Burger King offering vegan friendly burgers. 

In Manchester the popularity of meat-free restaurants like Bundobust and Vegan Revolution show the growing amount of plant-based options on offer.

MM went along to the Grub festival to speak to vendors and visitors about whether they thought the scheme was helping fuel the popularity of plant-based diets.
