VeggieFair is offering to all interested parties a wide variety of products such as vegan sausages, kebabs, vegetable spreads and cannabis fritters. The VeggieFair will also include raw cakes, various vegetable milks and vegan ice creams. VeggieFair will also be rich in vegan cookbooks and other useful books, while there will be completely plant-based ready-made food for dogs and cats, too.
Some of the exhibitors on the VeggieFair are also carriers of the V-label, unique mark of the quality that is issued by European Vegetarian Union (EVU) for the products without ingredients of animal origin. V-label is attractive to almost all consumers, and is also becoming more popular in Croatia.
This year VeggieFair will present 13 exhibitors who will also be part of the hundred of exhibitors on this year's ZeGeVege festival, taking place on 4th and 5th September 2015. on the main square.
