In country's like the UK there has never been a better time to be living a vegan life. In big cities like London you can easily find ample vegan options when eating out. But this hasn't always been the case and in many parts of world eating vegan whilst outside of the home continues to be a challenge.
To create a world where veganism is the dominant food culture we need to ensure that there is a wide availability of plant-based foods available everywhere.
At Vevolution this year you will get an opportunity to learn from inspiring vegan entrepreneurs striving to create a better world.
