In the third vegan news report related to Thailand this week, following Let’s Plant Meat and Loma Linda; the plant-based dog food company v-planet reveals that pet parents in Thailand can now purchase their vegan kind kibble from distributor P. Unithai Co., LTD through website Taily Buddy, increasing the number of markets to seven.
“It’s evident that Thailand cares deeply for the well-being of their pets,” said Lindsay Rubin, vice president of v-planet. “Cruelty-free kibble is the future of nutritious animal superfoods, and as Thailand is rated as one of the top 10 countries for vegan and vegetarian travel, it comes as no surprise that the country is taking steps to incorporate plant-based ingredients in their dogs’ diet.”
V-planet is a family-owned international business based in San Francisco, California. V-planet’s parent company, v-dog, has been in the business of making plant-based dog food for 15 years. V-planet has expanded to Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, New Zealand, Panama, Singapore, and now Thailand.
Speaking to vegconomist this March, Ms Rubin said: “We think plant-based food for dogs still remains a nearly untouched area of veganism. Millions of vegans have dogs, but only a small percentage consider that they don’t need meat in their diet to thrive. It’s exciting to be part of this movement that is showing the world that dogs can thrive on vegan diets.”
