Vegan Leaders Gather For Vevolution Topics
Two weeks ago over 160 people joined us for the first Vevolution Topics event of 2017. Our focus for this event was vegan food innovation.
This felt like a great place to start this series, it is clear that vegan food has captured the mainstream imagination. Plant-based recipes are dominating food magazines, supermarkets are scrambling to increase their offering of vegan products and vegan restaurants in London are opening almost weekly it seems. Damien wrote a little article about it for the Huffington Post recently 'Stop fighting veganism, it has already won'.
Below watch the highlights of this fantastic evening:
'When you are doing something exciting you can really feel the buzz in the room' - Damien Clarkson, Vevolution Co-Founder
The evening saw talks given by Made In Hackney, allplants, Bosh! and ended with a panel discussion hosted by Meriel Armitage of Club Mexicana.
With the focus being on vegan food it was only right that we showcased some of London's most exciting food providers. The evening saw delicious food being served up by Pomodoro E Basilico and Proofs Place creation Kyoto Kitchen. Vida Bakery and Kind State Of Mind provided the sweetest of treats for attendees, whilst our sponsors TideFord Organics, Oatly and the folks at Lemonaid+ provided delicious samples throughout the evening.
'The Path To Vegan Food Innovation isn't a linear one' - Judy Nadel, Vevolution, Co-Founder
I think what really resonated with us from the talks is that that path to vegan food innovation can take many forms. Our speakers had all come from non food backgrounds before creating plant-based food organisations.
Between them they had previous careers in tech startups, marketing, management consulting and as a reggae journalist.
This is important because it shows that if you have a passion for plant-based food there is no reason why you can't start creating your own vegan food project.
We live in a world which is crying out for not only both physical vegan food businesses but people to help educate the world how move beyond the need for animal derived products.
Vevolution Topics is back at the Trampery on the 7th March. this time focusing on Health And Wellbeing.
This time the focus is on how we can achieve a holistic approach to health and develop a fit body and mind.
