5 Filipino-Owned Plant-Based Eats to Finish Veganuary Strong


Taking on the Veganuary challenge? Here are five Filipino-owned businesses based in Metro Manila where you can source your plant-based eats and meat-free cravings

Veganism is not for everyone, but it’s certainly worth trying for the sake of public health, the environment, and animals. That’s what Veganuary, a non-profit organization, encourages through its annual event, which promotes veganism to non-vegans. Here, non-vegans can take up the challenge of adopting a vegan diet for the whole month of January. Suddenly making the transition to a vegan diet is no easy feat, however, so plant-based meat alternatives are a huge help. Whether you’re struggling with completing Veganuary or thinking of adopting a vegan lifestyle as well, this list is for you. Ahead, we’ve listed five Filipino-owned businesses where you can order your next favorite plant-based eats.
