Some of our favourite stories from around the web.
Pizza Is a Virtue – The internet exploded when word got out that Vancouver-based Virtuous Pie will be opening a location in Little Italy early next year (Veg News). In addition to offering a wide array of unique vegan pizzas, something that makes this place special is it’s sheer size – expect it to be two stories with enough seating for 166 guests!
Apiecalypse, Wha?! Of course, Toronto is no stranger to fantastic and creative vegan pizzas, being home to Apiecalypse Now and it’s new upstairs bar FuBar. They have us on the edge of our seats again by announcing a secret surprise to be revealed at this year’s Veg Food Fest. They’ve created a special Facebook group just to tease you all summer long.
Daiya’s Sticky Situation – Feedback has been mixed as to whether the selling of Daiya Foods (VegNews) to an international pharmaceutical company that tests on animals is good or bad. Some feel it’s unfortunate they sold to a company that doesn’t align with their values, while others tout the possibility of vegan cheese becoming more accessible and affordable due to the takeover. We’ll let you be the judge.
Dairy-Freed Goats – It’s a happy ending for goats at a Colorado farm. VegNews shared the story last week that Andrea Davis is transitioning her goat cheese farm to a sanctuary and vegan educational centre.
Toronto the Gooey – Following on the two exciting pizza-related announcements above, it’s no surprise that Toronto ranks among the world’s most veg-friendly cities as chosen by the fabulous chooseveg.com.
