Animals rights group PETA has selected 20 universities based on the availability of plant-based food options on campus and their initiatives to promote vegan eating.

University of Portsmouth earned a spot on the list after university chefs were trained to create plant-based meals to offer more options on campus.

The university has also launched a loyalty scheme rewarding students with free meals if they choose plant-based dishes.
