A delicious way of saving the climate: award-winning sustainable dining app vanilla bean comes to U.S

Vegan restaurant guide vanilla bean launches with over 16,000 vegan-friendly venues in the US. Biggest database of its kind.


Jan. 24, 2018 / PRZen / REGENSBURG, Germany -- Plant-based cuisine is being hailed as one of the top food trends of 2018. Sales of vegan foods (such as meat, dairy, and egg alternatives) in the U.S. topped $3.1 billion last yearan increase of 8.1 percent, according to research by Nielsen.

Americans are increasingly choosing meat-free options. Some cite health reasons, especially following the success of Netflix' latest documentary, "What the Health". Others raise concerns about animal welfare and the massive carbon footprint of industrial livestock farming. Combined with the rapidly growing number of people with food intolerances, the search for suitable restaurants is becoming more and more difficult.

The free-to-download app vanilla bean (vanilla-bean.com) is about to solve that problem. The plant-based restaurant guide is aimed at conscious consumers who seek climate-friendly and healthy dining options. The app allows users to filter for restaurants that use organic, local, and fair-trade ingredients. In addition, it provides information on which restaurants offer gluten-free and lactose-free options.

CEO and Co-founder Fabian Kreipl: "We want to show people that eating plant-based on the go is not only possible but easy and delicious. People might be surprised that you can find fantastic vegan-friendly restaurants anywhere, be it in meat-loving Texas or the great cheese state of Wisconsin."
