Portland Gets 100% Vegan Supermarket

Portland just got a little more vegan.

The world’s first and largest vegan grocery store chain, Veganz, has announced that it’s going to be popping up in the US city later this year. The supermarket of our dreams has already laid brick in Berlin, Frankfurt, Prague and several other European destinations since it’s founding in 2011, housing ten locations in total. The brand plans to also capitalize on the American hot spot with a clothing store and restaurant. 

Like us, German founder Jan Bredack envisioned a store where he wasn’t segregated to a single aisle. So, after experiencing vegan options during his travels around the U.S. and Russia, Veganz was born. Now, Veganz imports goods from 30 countries across the globe, selling thousands of vegan products. THOUSANDS! If you have a favourite nut milk, faux sausage, or cheese, you better believe it’s there. And like a Canadian visiting an American supermarket chain (my ideal vacation), you’re bound to find many new favourites.

Vegans make up about six percent of the American population, but Bredack notes that his stores appeal to omnivores as well. He estimates that 80 percentage of shoppers don’t classify themselves as vegan, or even vegetarian. Here’s hoping Canada is next in Bredack’s world domination plans, because we’re tired of reading labels all days.

Check out this review to take a sneak peek in to the store.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
