Posted on 12 August 2019

A new type of show will be debuting in the Mother City at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on 30 and 31 May 2020.

The Vegan & Plant Powered Show aims to bring what was previously considered a fringe diet of veganism, as well as plant-based and conscious living to a mainstream audience.

The two-day event will feature international and local celebrity cooks and chefs presenting live demo. There will also be over 120 exhibitors showcasing the very latest food and drink products, to lifestyle brands in the vegan and plant-based industries. All from around South Africa and the world.

It’s is not only aimed at vegans and vegetarians but also flexitarians, reducetarians, sports enthusiasts, individuals who have compromised their health and those looking for healthier and more ethical lifestyle choices for themselves and their family.

ProVeg Director Donovan Will said, “as the global move towards more plant-based diets and vegan lifestyles has been growing, South Africans are learning about the benefits of this change.

“The Vegan & PlantPowered Show is a great opportunity to accelerate this learning, and for the public to experience the best that the movement has to offer. To find out more about the health, environmental and ethical benefits of moving towards a more plant-based diet.

“Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to sample, and even learn to cook, tasty, healthy and sustainable food. Anyone with an interest in food, health, the environment or more conscious living, will benefit from attending the show.”

Details of the Johannesburg date and venue will be announced soon.
