With the number of older vegans growing and increasing publicity about the health benefits of following a plant-based diet, care home caterers are urged to sign up to visit the UK’s first ever vegan trade show, which is now open for registration.
VegfestUK Trade takes place on 20th October 2017 at Olympia, London and follows on from the hugely popular vegan consumer show, VegfestUK, which has been running for 15 years.
Visitors will be able to hear a number of the world’s leading health figures speaking in the Vegan Health Clinic section of the show, which is tailored to health professionals. Topics covered will include: Whether soya is a health/junk food according to science; Supplementation for vegans which includes more than just vitamin B12; Raw foods – benefits and drawbacks; The nutritional reversal of coronary artery disease – fact or fiction?; Are plant-based diets preventative medicine?; and How not to die.
Other areas of the show include a Plant-based Chefs Corner with vegan recipe ideas and suggestions for catering for vegans.
Care home caterers can register to attend the show for free at www.trade.vegfest.co.uk/registration
