Why Vegan?

Veganism is THE fastest-growing trend in our country, with Australia topping Google's worldwide searches for the word vegan!

With concerns over health, climate change, cruelty to animals and water usage, Aussies now lead the way towards a healthier, kinder and cleaner future.

If we compare vegan products in supermarkets now to just a few years ago, we can see that even mainstream companies are aware of the rising interest in a plant-based lifestyle.

TV exposes and environmental documentaries make people question where their food comes from and decide to make changes in their life.

As Aussie celebrities such as Liam Hemsworth are declaring their renouncing of meat, eggs and dairy products, veganism loses its "hippie image" and more and more well-known companies are jumping on the bandwagon to not miss out on this hot new way of living. Headlines like "Guinness goes vegan" show that even multinationals such as the Irish beer-giant are aware of the ever-growing interest and demand for more vegan options all over the world.

Come and see what the future will be like.
