How does a Business Membership differ from the Vegetarian Directory?Prana-BusMembershipphoto

The Vegetarian Directory is an annually published print and online ad program. It offers valuable exposure which can be complimented by Business Membership perks. For example, if you want to reach an audience with a special offer or make sure they stay updated with your special events, having a Business Membership is a good way to expand and stay connected with your clients. For full details on how the Vegetarian Directory and the Business Membership differ, view this chart.

How does my Business Membership support the TVA?

Our charitable work is supported by donors and business partners– from printing fact sheets and vegetarian starter kits to coordinating North America’s largest annual Vegetarian Food Festival. An active Business Membership program helps show that we are an authority in our field. As a recognized authority, we are more likely to be consulted by media and policy makers when it comes to veg issues.
