Why create VeganNews.com.au?
VeganNews.com.au was created in response to pressing environmental, social and health-related concerns. Our aim is to become Australia’s number one source of plant based news, information and inspiration.
We envision a world where consuming animal byproducts is frankly passé, and hope to connect Australians with the information necessary to bring about such change. Our goal is to create an approachable, tolerant, non-judgemental online community that makes plant based living simple, versatile and achievable.
Did you know that Australia is the world’s third largest vegan market?
The tastes and sensibilities of Australian consumers are changing, perhaps indelibly. The market for vegan packaged foods is expected to be worth $215 million alone by 2020, whilst Melbourne is fast gaining a reputation as the vegan capital of the world.
Major food retailers such as Domino’s, Grill’d, Guzman Y Gomez and Subway now offer multiple vegan menu items – and they’re far from the only brands who have identified a surging vegan market. Grocery giants such as Woolworths, Coles, IGA and Foodworks are actively extending their vegan product range.
What does VeganNews.com.au offer our plant based community?
VeganNews.com.au offers a powerful tool for plant based Australians to communicate, educate and inspire one another. We are partnering with an upcoming sister site, FlexiVeg.com, to welcome readers at every stage of their exploration into plant based living.
We provide dedicated spaces for activism, along with vegan recipes, product reviews, news updates and daily inspiration. We love sharing the journey with you, our readers, and encourage you to let the VeganNews.com.au team know if there is something you’d like to see here.
You can get social with VeganNews.com.au by following our dedicated Facebook page and Instagram account. We have also recently launched a dedicated Facebook Group for activism, making it easy to support animal rights and environmental causes. Feel free to drop us a line anytime via firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support, and here’s to the future: It’s vegan.
