Switzerland has been recognized as the best European country to be a vegetarian, according to the study, conducted by comparison site The Eco Experts, while Finland and Norway placed second and third, respectively. The result is quite surprising.
Research placed Sweden in fourth best place for those preferring a plant-based diet, ahead of the United Kingdom into fifth; while Belgium ranked sixth and Hungary seventh.
Famous for its piri piri chicken, Portugal is ranked as the worst on the list, the country also has an insufficient number of veggie-friendly restaurants on offer.
26 countries were ranked based on the number of vegetarian-friendly restaurants per 100,000 people, annual meat consumption and the price of meat (to show the cost-saving of not eating it).
