Vegan Resources (Mumbai/India/Online)

A list of vegan food brands and resources that I’ve been compiling for my own reference for the last 3.5 years. Now that I’m repeatedly asked similar questions in Insta DMs, I thought I must share it here and make life easier for everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

This is not a comprehensive list – it has some brands I’ve tried and others that I’ve just come across and saved for future reference. This list is Mumbai-focused as I live here but some brands are available across India. I’m sure this will work as a good starting point if you’re looking for something vegan. Please Google or look for them on Instagram for contact details. (I will try adding links for all when I find the time.)

My tips: 1. Check the ingredients as not all brands are fully vegan + some may have cleaner ingredients than others 2. Check where it’s made. I try to buy products made locally, using local ingredients by small vegan businesses as far as possible. Of course, it’s best to DIY (many basic recipes on my Insta page) but for when you can’t, this list should help! (If you do decide to share parts of it, please give due credit to my blog or Insta page.)

I am not suggesting that you need to buy any of these items in order to go vegan. This is just a ready reference for you and to show you that substitutes are available for everything. In India we are blessed with a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lentils, pulses, beans, millets, rice and other ancient grains. And you can have the most delicious and nutritious dishes made with them.

Lastly, this is not sponsored by any of those listed – just my compilation having been vegan for over 3.5 years now. ๐Ÿ˜Š I will keep updating this whenever I can. If you have some favourites that you’d like to see included, please leave a comment or DM me @adiventurousvegan and I’ll check them out. ๐Ÿ’— (I have not included things like biscuit/snack brands that are accidentally vegan.)

If you’re in Mumbai, Rare Earth is a one-stop vegan shop for a variety of brands for every product you’d need from across India. You can contact them on +917710899791 and have everything delivered! They’ve also recently started making their own plant milks, butters, curd, breads, cakes, etc.
