Vegetarianism and flexitarism, emerging tendencies? How to understand the phenomenon, its evolution in the pass and planning its future?

Vegetarianism, veganism and flexitarism are often presented in the media as emerging and growing trends. A more robust analysis is necessary, based on data from existing French surveys. These differ in their methodologies, but reveal that the proportion of vegetarians is still small. In contrast, people who reduce their meat consumption, and do so for different reasons, represent a significant part of the population. There are several driving factors of these diets and we can imagine a future where French eat less meat, but of better quality.
