Over 2500 people visited Veganmess 2022

 

On Saturday, October 22, the 12th consecutive Veganmess took place at the Noblessner foundry in Tallinn, where nearly 70 traders and organisations participated in a vegan fair attended by 2,700 people from Estonia and abroad.

The fair offered plant-based food and consumer goods, finished products and raw materials, as well as animal- and nature-friendly cosmetics and household chemicals. There were also exciting presentations and discussions. For the first time, a charity flash tattoo event was held at the fair, during which those who wished could decorate their bodies with tattoos and in this way support the Loomus animal-friendly beauty program LILU.

On stage, personal trainer and powerlifter Gert Koovit, Kristjan and Marleen from the TV show Naabrist Parem, partners of the Loomus animal-friendly beauty program LILU, and Fridays for Future climate activists spoke about their journey to plant-based nutrition. A public recording of the Estonian Vegan podcast was also conducted with nutritionist Eliis Salm, who dissected myths related to veganism. In addition, a direct connection was made to Ukraine, where the CEO of Ukraine’s largest animal protection organisation UAnimals gave an overview of the situation there.
