British Chef and food writer Tom Hunt believes veganism is becoming more mainstream.

Hunt - who is only a vegetarian himself - says the launch of more plant-based products shows it is becoming more popular as a movement.

He told Channel 4 News: "I think we can safely say veganism is mainstream. The number of vegans over the last few years has grown exponentially.

"It's a really good thing in terms of the environment of course, because of the serious impact of animal agriculture

"There is this movement to eating more plants, which is brilliant not just for the environment but for the health of the country as well.

"What we should be focusing on is the celebration of eating well, having more plant-based options on a menu, it's really exciting."

Tom Hunt runs Poco in Bristol which serves meat, we don't know why Channel 4 chose to interview him.
