Hey there, vegan. Looking for stores that will cater to your dairy and meat-free needs? Look no further.
The Filipino vegan movement is growing, and more locals are demanding for more diverse vegan options. Choosing a restaurant or a grocery store can be difficult in the metro, and not all food establishments have vegan options.
However, the rise of Instagram stores is changing the vegan scene, as small business owners delve into homemade and organic vegan products for the local vegan movement. You know what they say, if you don’t know where to purchase certain things, always check Instagram.
Here are 5 IG stores with a variety of vegan options:
The Good Choices PH makes Filipino plant-based specialties that are very accessible, appealing, and convenient for health, sustainability, and consciousness. They sell vegan tapa, longganisa, sisig, tocino, and other “meat” products that are mostly made of soy protein, vegetable oil, and other plant-based spices.
All-natural yummy nut butters can be found in Rose’s Kitchen. These homemade goodies can be used in various ways, in your sandwich, salad, smoothie bowls, paired with your fruits, and more. These healthy alternatives are made with locally sourced, wholesome, minimal ingredients and are formulated without refined sugars or preservatives.
The Vegan Grocer PH ’s goal is to spread vegan, dairy-free, egg-free, and cruelty-free products for Mother Earth and the animals, and for the liberation of all sentient beings. They house multiple vegan brands, and is your typical grocery store—but vegan.
