Everyone is eating plant-based foods these days. Sales are booming — the industry is valued at more than $4.5 billion — and new brands are emerging every day. So many, in fact, that it can be hard to keep up with all the new products hitting shelves.
Connecting With Vegan Brands
Do you rely on social media to keep tabs on trends and brands? That’s an easy way to stay up on all your favorites. You can follow brands themselves, but you can also follow hashtags, too. So, if you’re a big fan of vegan burgers, just drop that hashtag (#veganburgers) into your Instagram search and hit “follow.” It’ll help you see as many conversations as possible happening around your favorite topic.
Or maybe you work the vegan food festival circuits to taste the latest creations. With so many vegan festivals and events happening around the world, it’s easier than ever to get your hands — and lips — around the best of the best. You can use sites like Meetup and Eventbrite to sort by vegan events near you. And you can also turn to social media again to follow events and regional vegan accounts in the know.
Or, perhaps you spend hours getting lost in your local supermarket aisles marveling at all the tasty vegan eats. You probably want to eat a good meal before you wander down the supermarket aisles with a big cart to fill, but this can be a really fun and easy way to check out new brands. If you generally run into the supermarket, grab your staples, and then head out, you may be missing a lot of great products. Block off a few hours a month to do a slow wander through your local supermarket checking out new products and categories you may not have even heard of! You can also often find new (and very local) brands at your neighborhood farmers market. These markets are typically so much more than just fruit and veg vendors. Keep a keen eye out for vegan cheeses, ready meals, even handmade nut milk.
You can also check out all the latest vegan eats and products right from your own computer. Meet Mylk Guys, the online vegan shop connecting consumers to the latest and greatest in vegan products and make plant-based eating easier.
Mylk Guys was founded in 2018 with the mission to make finding vegan food easier. Sustainability lies at the heart of the brand’s values. Traditional animal-based food has a heavy impact on the planet. Eating plant-based saves significant amounts of water, land, and reduces your carbon footprint.
“We’re on a mission to make it absurdly easy to eat plan(et) based so that one day, the food we eat won’t hurt the planet,” says Mylk Guys founder Gaurav Maken.
A ‘First-Stop-Shop’ for Vegan Groceries
Mylk Guys carries the widest selection of vegan goods on the web, offering more than 1,000 hard-to-find products (like Vtopian artisanal vegan cheese) and classic staples like Gardein and Tofurky. No more going to one store for your favorite vegan chicken, then schlepping to another for other groceries.
It’s not just all about food, though — Mylk Guys also offers cruelty-free personal care products. And customers can even filter by values such as buying ethically-sourced products, businesses run by women, and fair trade brands.
“Whether you’ve been eating plant-based, transitioning to a plant-based diet, or interested in knowing more, we’re here to help you every step of the way,” says Maken.
A Space for Brands New and Old
Building on its success, Mylk Guys is now preparing for expansion. This year, it opened a bigger warehouse in Northern California. But, that’s only the first step. The brand plans to bring sales to the East Coast, opening a new distribution center to ensure that items stay in stock.
It also hopes to become a space where emerging brands can launch new vegan products before they’re available in brick and mortar stores as well as running giveaways and campaigns to help people, animals, and the planet. They are building an online community where people can talk about products, share their lifestyle tips, and discuss their journey is also in the works.
The brand is in-tune to what customers want and is open to taking new product suggestions — including those new, local vegan brands that nobody’s ever heard of yet. By supporting new vegan brands, Mylk Guys seeks to help them grow — and by proxy, help save the world. With more successful vegan brands on the market, plant-based eating moves closer to becoming the new mainstream.
“If you care and want to take action, you are a change-maker,” says Maken. “Together we can save the planet – one bite at a time!”
