It looks like Brussels is following most of the global food trends. As more and more people learn about the values of plant-based nutrition and the dangers of excessive meat consumption (both for the health of humans and for the whole planet) then it comes as no surprise that VeggieWorld – Germany’s biggest vegan food fair, decided to come to Brussels.

The international atmosphere and cosmopolitan nature of Brussels is certainly a reason why the vegan scene is also experiencing strong growth here too: more and more vegan restaurants and cafés are opening up in order to cater for the growing demand for a vegan lifestyle. The organizers – non-profit association EVA and German VeggieWorld fair were happy to announce that the very first edition of VeggieWorld in Brussels is due to start this autumn 2017. VeggieWorld, the international vegan fair will have a lot to offer – an inspirational weekend with interesting talks, cooking demos, tastings, vegan products and meals to eat in or to take away.
