Our Story

In 1995, a Buddhist couple living in Richmond BC birthed their small business, bringing meat alternatives to Canada to sell to their community out of reverence for the environment and life itself.

Today, Happy Veggie World is an international producer and distributor of quality vegetarian and vegan food for the retail and foodservice industry. Our products are sold online, in specialty shops, and restaurant chains, but the principle of feeding our community with quality food that respects our environment has never changed. We also endeavour to follow these principles in our business practices.

It’s our ongoing goal to bring plant-base meat alternatives to vegans and vegetarians that are so good, non-vegetarians feel like they might be missing out.

Distribution Network

We want to make vegetarian and vegan food alternatives as accessible as possible in Canada. To do this from our headquarters in Richmond BC, Happy Veggie World supplies our customers — vegans, vegetarians, health-conscious omnivores and retailers — through a number of commercial channels.

Our trusted online retailers and satellite warehouses in Edmonton and Ottawa ensure our customers across the country have Happy Veggie World products when needed, and our distribution network caters to all sectors of the food industry:

  • Natural food retailers
  • Vegetarian religious and co-op groups
  • Wholesalers
  • Restaurant food service institutions
  • Hospitality and industrial services

The more distributors we have, the more access people have to meat alternatives, and the closer we come to making this a Happy Veggie World.
