Canada’s highly-anticipated vegan, vegetarian, and sustainable food event is almost here!

Taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West this Sunday, May 27 the Veg Expo is set to feature more than 200 local and international exhibitors.

For you, this means you’ll be able to purchase some plant-based edible and innovative lifestyle products – some of which are brand new to the market (cue excited dance).

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up 10 notable products that you’ll find at this year’s Veg Expo.

Honest Juice – Cold Pressed Juice

Honest Juice/Veg Expo

Hate Carrots? No problem. Honest Juice will revolutionize the way you look at carrots. This simple five-ingredient juice is the perfect symphony of fruits and vegetables that sure will make you go “BRAVO!” Needless to say, it’s fairly soul-awakening.

Frozen Coconut Non-Dairy Dessert

With summer almost at full blast, it’s time to take your ice cream game to the next level. If you’re looking for a refreshing sorbet but don’t want to miss out on the creaminess of a soft serve, look no further – Frozen Coconut’s got the match for you.

Big Mountain Foods

Let’s taco ‘bout it. Sometimes we just want that perfect topping to finish off our meticulously crafted tacos, and Big Mountain Foods’ Cauli Cumble’s got your back. It’s delicious, made from cauliflower and split peas, and fully plant-powered.

HerbaLand – Healthy Nutritious Gummies

Ever wished that supplements were as tasty as candies? Well, HerbaLand is about to turn your dreams into a reality. These vegan D3 and B12 gummies are so delicious and loaded with a potent formula that supports healthy functioning of the body.

Nagi Makaroons

When that sugar craving kicks in, it’s hard to resist sweet sweet macaroons. But Nagi’s adding a healthy and tasty twist to this not so healthy dessert, making it 100% guilt-free. Totally raw and delicious, it’s like a sweet dream.

YamChops Chick’N Schnitzel

This chick’n schinitzel will knock your socks off (literally). It’s great as a cutlet with your favourite sauce or piled on a fresh crusty bun topped with tomato sauce, caramelized onion, sautéed mushrooms, and pickled jalapeno peppers. YUM.

Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Ice Cream

It’s Ben & Jerry’s – ’nuff said.

Quesava Vegan Samosas and the Very Good Butchers’ Pepperoni

Quesava’s samosas are not your typical samosas, they’re quite possibly the chewiest and most flavourful samosas you’ll ever put in your mouth. Made from manioc flour (AKA cassava flour), they’re 100% gluten-free. What about protein? Well, the Very Good Butcher is bringing you meat-free alternatives like pepperoni that you can feel good about.

Ergogenics

Ergogenics/Veg Expo

Still not enough protein? Ergonenics’ Plant Protein contains 12 protein-rich nutrient dense plant-based ingredients and it’s an excellent source of essential amino acids. With all 20 amino acids and all 10 essential amino acids, you won’t need to eat a tin of spinach to knock Popeye out.

PureLeaf Matcha

You can now make your own iced green tea latte at home with Pure Leaf Pure Matcha. Sourced from the finest Tencha green leaves from shade-grown Japanese tea plants, you can now wave goodbye to those syrupy s’bux drinks and say thank you very matcha to Pure  Leaf.
