Last week I attended the Vegfest Trade show, which was the first trade show for Vegfest and they did did a great job!
As those attending the main Vegfest London 2017 will know, there were lots of fabulous vegan talks, products and services on offer. Something for both the newest of vegans along with seasoned vegans.
My favourites were the talk about the exciting plans for Veganuary 2018, which is expecting to draw record numbers of participants and which will be amazing. Also a great talk on social media and the rise of veganism.
There were numerous great vegan products on show too, tumeric latte powders, new egg replacements, the great pies from Clives, but my absolute favourite was the variety of new cheeses on offer.
For me the best cheeses were by New Roots, who produced exceptionally high quality brie and soft cheese alternatives. Check out their products here: https://www.newroots.ch/
Another favourite of mine is Ms Cupcake, aka the beautiful Melissa – who with her team always puts on an amazing array of cupcakes and treats. I particuarly enjoyed the new red velvet oreo brownie and black forest cookie sandwich…. both of which were great.

Another great range of products were Tide Ford, who had fabulous organic soups for tasting – I was very impressed that they have now made their entire range vegan!
And then there was the Coffee and Cheese company, who had a great range of meat alternatives – many of which I hadn’t come across before.
I was also pleased to see Tofurky showing their fabulous products, Fry family foods and Wing Yip too…. and so many more.
What a great event. It is crystal clear that the demand for vegan foods is just growing and growing, which is great for the vegans, those who want more plant food and the animals!!
