A third of the population identifies as ‘Flexitarian’ which means thy are sitting down on their meat consumption. A lot of people are switching to plant based alternatives including dairy products, where sales of Alpro Unsweetened Almond Milk have gone up by 2,343 per cent since 2015 – the equivalent of over 265k litres or around 3,300 baths full of this nut based alternative to cow’s or goat’s milk!
