Since its launch at Vegfest 2018, Crazy Bean ( has come a long way, with plans to launch the UK-based company in Europe in 2020. Their vision is to be ‘the world’s number one online platform for buying and selling vegan products’. The ethical, vegan marketplace supports independent businesses and creates an easy, safe and secure shopping environment.

Currently, Crazy Bean have over 70 vendors approved and trading, with new products coming online every week. The growth and increased demand in vegan products has attracted a large number of new suppliers and products to the market, making the vegan sector one of the most disruptive markets today.

Crazy Bean want to help to keep independent vegan producers afloat and aid their growth — they work with suppliers hand-in-hand and support them, building long term relationships with every company that works with them. As such, Crazy Bean do not take any transaction or set-up fees from their vendors, who can use the platform to trade for free. When customers spend money on Crazy Bean every penny goes to the start-ups and independents, rather than to the platform providers.

The marketplace is focused solely on helping suppliers to operationalise their ideas, get to market and reach as many new customers as possible. They also offer their vendors essential services, including fulfilment, marketing, packaging, strategy development and networking, in order to help vendors grow and mature within the expanding vegan market.

From fashion to food, and from pets to wellbeing, Crazy Bean is a one-stop ethical shop for everything vegan, delivered to your door.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our June issue. It’s my favourite time of year, when hot days and warm evenings, beach trips and long walks fill our time. And with all the joy that summer brings, it’s the perfect time to gather your friends and advocate in the best way possible — with fantastic food. It was this time last year that I hosted a BBQ at my own house, and served my omni friends an entirely vegan menu (including my first ever bash at vegan mac’n’cheese). It was a great success and triggered some of my friends into making more animal and planet-friendly decisions when doing their food shops. We’ve put together everything you need to host your own BBQ bonanza (p40) — from food, drinks and sauces to ice cream and hosting tips — so your summer gathering will be both delicious and memorable. Not all experiences with non-vegans are so positive. The topic of ‘vegaphobia’, or hatred towards vegans, has been floating around Vegan Life HQ. As an office full of vegans, most of us have experienced some kind of backlash or negativity — I myself have been shouted at in public, for merely stating my vegan point of view. We asked you about your own experiences of this phenomenon (p68) and your answers were illuminating — one woman was even turned down a job because of her veganism. It seems that despite so much progress, some people still take task with us choosing a peaceful way of life. Jessie Keogh covers how to deal with these testing situations on p120. Have a great month,
