Natural plant-based food & beverage company PlantVeda launches the world’s first vegan probiotic lassi in Vancouver, BC; Wins VegExpo Product of the Year; Signs up first retail locations in Lower Mainland, BC
May 6, 2019, Vancouver, BC
Plant Veda launched the world’s first vegan probiotic lassi at VegExpo in Vancouver, BC, with much excitement and support from our community. VegExpo is attended by over 20,000 people, and Plant Veda is happy to introduce five delicious flavours in North America this summer – Mango, Coffee, Saffron Cardamom, Tumeric Ginger, and Vanilla Lassi. Made with only simple ingredients (cashews, oats, cane sugar, Himalayan salt, fruit pectin, and live dairy-free cultures), Plant Veda’s line of lassis are crafted to quench your thirst naturally.
Plant Veda’s mango lassi won VegExpo’s most anticipated “Product of the Year Award,” (sweet or treat category) as decided by a panel of judges. “We sampled the mango lassi flavour and fell in love instantly,” according to a public statement made by the panel.
“Scary good, I would go though them like crazy,” says Jonny Juicer, juicing expert, health coach, and a vegan influencer. Made with rich and creamy cashew yogurt, whipped to make the cream rise to the top, Lassi is a traditional Indian beverage known for its cooling and digestive properties. The Lassi contains a special blend of beneficial living dairy-free cultures which helps maintain your gut health.
Our line of lassis will be available shortly at two VeganSupply locations in the lower mainland, BC. “It has great flavour and taste,” says Jason Anthony, co-founder of VeganSupply.
