Kara Dairy Free
Kara Dairy Free is one of the best vegan milk alternatives on the market. An exquisite blend of coconut making this a very tasty drink it its own right, with considerable health properties too, such is the nature of pure coconut. The milk can be used on cereal and as a drink and in a variety of recipes that call for milk, and of course brings a distinct flavour to any recipe. Low in fat (only 2%) and rich in calcium, as well as being cholestorol free this is a fantastic healthy option for people of all dietary persuasions. Additionally, the coconut is not a nut but is actually a fruit, making Kara Dairy Free a nut free product and therefore suitable for people with nut allergies, which is amazing. As with many vegan businesses, there's a very nice team of people behind Kara Dairy Free and we wish them all the best and welcome them on board as a growing part of the vegan community. www.karadairyfree.com
Bute Island are the proud creators of the Sheese brand of vegan cheeses, making all their products at their custom built factory on the beautiful Isle of Bute in Scotland and shipping them to the four corners of the universe. A variety of textures and flavours makes the Sheese range a must have product for many vegan households, and being dairy free is of course an excellent choice for those who are lactose intolerant too. Available through independent health food shops across the UK, the Sheese range will also be available at Brighton for tasting sessions (although sadly the Bute Island team will not be on hand with a stall). VegfestUK extends a warm and heartfelt gratitude to the Bute Island team for their continued and wholehearted support for our events. www.buteisland.com
Amy's Kitchen is a family firm with a broad range of vegetarian and vegan foods that are healthy, tasty, nutritious and mostly ready to eat - and easily available too, from most supermarkets and independents, making them the ideal choice for people who haven't always got time (or the ability) to put together such excellent meals. A wide selection of tinned soups (nearly all vegan) is particularly welcoming as well as a huge range of burgers, pies, Indian meals, pizzas, desserts, burritos and a whole lot more. Big thanks for their support. Most of their vegan products will be available on their stall at Brighton for sampling. www.amyskitchen.co.uk
One of the biggest, most succesful and longest running pressure groups in the UK, Animal Aid have consistently achieved on a number of levels through a combination of education, undercover reporting, direct action and high profile campaigns to end suffering to animals on all levels, whilst still remaining the friendliest and most approachable of all the veggie pressure groups. Their shop is very well stocked and contains hunders of items, all vegan, and is well worth a visit. You can also join Animal Aid and receive their excellent publication, 'Outrage' for not a lot of money. See www.animalaid.org.uk for details.
