Who’d have guessed Germany tops vegan food production?

North America is far from alone in the abundance of new vegan options. In fact, they’re behind. Anyone interested in a trip to Berlin?

Grist shares a recent report that Germany was responsible for producing 18% of the world’s new vegan food products in 2016. They’ve been dubbed the winner in the race to fill shelves and stomaches with animal-free food innovations, but it’s clear the real winners are the German people.

The nation’s reputation for sausages and schnitzels is being matched by plant protein imitations, largely thanks to the 5% of German adults that proudly call themselves vegan. And it’s not just quantity coming out of the country. Stefan Lorkowski, the vice president of the German Nutrition Society, also confirmed “These new food products are quite tasty.” So hey, Lorkowski, there’s no time like the present to help the German people understand the nutritional benefits, ease, enjoyment and necessity of going vegan, yeah?

We will always hold the original giant, vegan soft pretzels close to our hearts, especially when paired with a Barnivore approved German beer. But until the results for 2017 emerge, we’ll continue to stalk the aisles near and abroad, eager for all the new products veganism helps demand.
