Who are our vegan business experts Lisa and David?

Vegan Business Tribe was founded by Lisa and David from Promote Vegan – a vegan consultancy helping high street brands and large food companies better understand the vegan consumer.  Lisa and David also write the monthly business column for the UK’s biggest Vegan magazine, Vegan Food & Living as well as being the official UK agents for The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark.

We launched Vegan Business Tribe at the start of 2020 as a place to offer support for vegan businesses – but then the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and we simply had to do everything we could to make our main content free and accessible to as many vegan businesses as possible. 

We’ve succeeded!  And the amount of success stories and new friends we’ve made along the way has been phenomenal!  Read our full story here >
