Twice a year, thousands of conscientious consumers—including some eager PETA staffers—flock to Natural Products Expo events to get a sneak peek at exciting new vegan products before they hit store shelves or restaurant kitchens. From meatless meats to dairy-free drinks (and even some health and beauty products that weren’t tested on animals), Expo West 2019 was full of products that will help animals, the environment, and shoppers. More people than ever are going vegan, and with great products like these on the horizon, it’s not hard to see why.
Here are some new vegan products from Expo West 2019 that we can’t wait to see in stores:
