According to a recent article, Veganz, the first all-vegan grocery chain in Europe, is set to expand due to popular demand!
The author explains, “German vegan supermarket Veganz believes it has found a niche with its type of store as turnover is growing spectacularly and it already has 9 stores.”
She also highlights the fact that Germany is home to over 7 million vegetarians and is experiencing an increasing demand for plant-based products. The ambitious owner of Veganz is now boasting a goal of opening 60 stores by 2020, including a store in Portland!
With the growing popularity of vegan foods, the planned expansion definitely makes business sense. In fact, earlier this month, The Guardian reported on the entrepreneurial prospects presented by the growing market for humane plant-based foods.
But booming vegetarian populations aren’t the only reason for this change in the market.
As plant-based eating flourishes, private investors like Li Ka-shing, Asia’s richest man, are throwing millions into food start-ups, and more and more delicious options are hitting store shelves all the time.
But there’s no need to wait. With the amazing variety of products already on the market, there’s never been a better time to ditch meat.
