Did you know that in 2016 Barcelona was listed as the first veg friendly city in the world? Of course, although there are many places in the world with vegan philosophy, in this case the main difference is that it is the first city where the city council has approved a proposal which supports the philosophy of focusing on food without animal products.
What does Barcelona offer as veg friendly?
Barcelona Veg Friendly offers a lot of incentives for all those who are focused on vegetarianism and veganism. Between them are:
- A guide with all restaurants in Barcelona that do not serve meat.
- A mobile application with vegan and vegetarian products.
- The BCN Veg Point for meetings and information.
- And the campaign “Monday without meat”. The food which comes from the administration is vegetarian on Mondays. That’s said, both in school canteens and other institutions managed by the Barcelona City Council, you will have an option of not eating meat on Monday. This global campaign, initially promoted by Paul McCartney, grows every day.
