Dorset Vegan is the brainchild of Lizzi Shaw.
Originally starting out on a personal quest to find more local vegan friendly places to eat out, Lizzi realised others were searching for the same information and began to actively promote local vegan friendly businesses under the Dorset Vegan brand.
Dorset Vegan now provides an online resource used by over 12,000 people and Lizzi actively works with local businesses to develop and promote their vegan provision to locals and tourists alike.
In 2014, Lizzi turned her hand to organising Dorset's first vegan fair in Bournemouth, an event which attracted over 800 people. The events have become Lizzi's main focus and she was delighted to welcome almost 8,000 people to vegan fairs in Bournemouth and the New Forest in 2016. For details of upcoming events, visit dorsetveganevents.co.uk.
She also has plenty of other plans up her sleeve to continue her mission of showing people how easy, delicious and healthy it can be to live a vegan lifestyle, so keep watching this space!
