There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Germany Vegan Supermarket Chain to Come to US in 2016!!

Jan Bredack founded the first vegan supermarket chain called “Veganz“, in Berlin, Germany. The business venture has proven successful with plans to open dozens of branches across Europe and for the very first time, in the US, in 2016.
In 2009, Bredack turned to veganism after suffering burn-out from a less than balanced life. After changing his lifestyle and ethical code, he wrote the book “Vegan für alle: Warum wir richtig leben sollten” ("Veganism for everyone: Why we should live right") to share his transformation with the masses.
After several trips abroad, the veggie entrepreneur, exposed to vegan products in other countries, decided to open his first store. Bredack says his decision to open a vegan supermarket came from a sundry of ideas after coming across various vegan products in the US and Russia. He said that it was difficult to shop normally when one adopts a vegan lifestyle, and he wanted to make the switch to veganism more accessible to everyone.
So for 2016, Bredack plans on taking his vegan chain to the United States. Veganz will open a vegan shopping center in Portland, Oregon--the U.S. vegan homeland.

When Veganz does arrive in Portland, I will never shop at Whole Foods again. Whole Foods is clearly ALL about the money and the owner believes a 100% vegan supermarket would fail. Well Whole Foods look and learn!
