With all the recent publicity about the health and environmental benefits of reducing one’s meat and dairy consumption, people all over the UK are actively seeking to replace their meat and dairy with decent vegan options – but where to start? Look no further than VegfestUK London – the UK’s biggest vegan event and full of inspiration to help even the most hardened meat lovers amongst us.
Making Senseon The Horizon
‘Giving up meat and dairy – or at least reducing our consumption – makes perfect sense on paper, but the reality can be somewhat different. ‘says VegfestUK organiser Tim Barford. ‘The recent BBC coverage of the health and environmental effects of meat and dairy consumption have influenced a large part of the UK population, and many are now actively seeking to give up meat and dairy. VegfestUK events offer a huge selection of food, cookery demos, films, talks, shopping and entertainment, all of it plant based, and can help provide the ideal stepping stone for those who have made a decision to cut back on meat and dairy consumption. VegfestUK events are inclusive and welcome people from all backgrounds regardless of the current dietary status. Around 30% of our visitors eat meat and dairy, and around 30% are vegetarian, with around 40% already vegan, so there’s a fantastic mix of people at all our events.’
