Orders for vegan burgers on delivery platform DoorDash have increased by 433 percent in the six-month period from January 2020 to the end of June 2020. In its newly released “DoorDash Deep Dish” report, the platform outlined eating trends among its customers drawn from a national survey of 2,000 Americans. In addition to finding that 70 percent of respondents have spent more time cooking due to the COVID-19 lockdown, 20 percent said they “seriously considered veganism.” When it comes to plant-based dishes, 31 percent ranked vegetable pasta as the most appetizing while a large portion (27 percent) of people aged between 18 and 24 years old ranked plant-based meat as the most appetizing vegan food.
In addition to DoorDash, other delivery services reported an increase in vegan orders, including Grubhub which revealed that plant-based food orders increased by 135 percent in the first six months of 2020. Last year, the Impossible Burger was Grubhub’s most popular late-night order with its popularity increasing by 82 percent in the first half of 2019.
