LIFE Bistrot Restaurant – Vegan Specialities with Historical Flair

Usually we don’t report on individual restaurants, but we are really enthusiastic about this concept! In Volterra, Italy, the vegan LIFE Bistrot Restaurant opened in April this year, offering a wide range of vegan food and drinks. The unique thing about it is that it is situated in an archaeological area with many Etruscan ruins, which gives it a unique historical flair.

Sweden: Max Burgers Focuses on New Vegan Burger Options

The Swedish hamburger chain “Max Burgers” is expanding its vegan and vegetarian range. With this move, it is responding to the decline in meat consumption in Sweden.
