What does it mean to be a Vegan meal provider?
Being Vegan is much more than just not eating meat. It’s a lifestyle that promotes healthy eating, a love of all animals and respect for the planet that we live on. At times it can be really hard to live this lifestyle as the rest of society has not yet caught up to these ideals. When looking for a Vegan alternative for meal providers it can be a difficult task, unfortunately it is harder than just looking under the vegetarian section and clicking buy. To be a vegan meal provider we need to know that they are not using any animal products in the ingredients and preparation of the food. This means, no meat, dairy, eggs, animal fats and preferably sustainable packaging. Here is our list of 5 of the best providers that meet these requirements of all vegans.
