In this episode, I interview Claire Smith, co-founder of #humane investment platform @beyondinvesting, in Switzerland.⠀

Claire is a #vegan and #environmentalist with 34 years’ experience in finance and investment at top-tier banks and investment houses, including UBS and Albourne Partners. ⠀

Beyond Investing creates investment programs designed for animal advocates and climate-conscious investors in both public listed equity markets and venture capital. ⠀
The company created the US Vegan Climate Index, a stock index which screens out all animal exploitation and fossil fuel use from a US market benchmark, and is the sponsor of the US Vegan Climate Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), which launched on the New York Stock Exchange recently.🐷⠀

Claire is also an investor in vegan and plant-based businesses and the co-founder of the Beyond Animal integrated digital platform, which aims to accelerate the growth of the global vegan economy. 🌎⠀
👇⠀
In this episode Claire talks about:⠀

• How and why she and her team at Beyond Investing created the US Vegan Climate Index and ETF⠀

• How well ethical investments do, overall, compared to non-ethical ones, in terms of people getting a good return on their investment ⠀

• The three criteria she looks for when considering whether to invest in a vegan brand⠀

• How the Beyond Animal platform will help to drive the vegan economy⠀

• How the finance industry perceives veganism and how this has changed over the years⠀

• And much more⠀

To all the vegan activists out there who think you need to pay for ads to reach people with social media, you're incorrect. Loved discussing this and more with Katrina Fox of @vegan_business_media Podcast! 🎙️

In this episode, I interview Christophe Caron, owner of French #vegan restaurant @delicesarrasin in New York.⠀

Christophe moved from France to New York 10 years ago and worked as a fashion model. After becoming vegan he began craving animal-free versions of traditional French food. So he encouraged his mother Yvette – a renowned #chef in France – and his father Patrick to join him in New York to open a French vegan eatery.⠀ .
.

In this interview, Christophe discusses:⠀

• The leap of faith his parents, both about to enter their 60s, took by moving to a new country and starting a venture that hadn’t been done before⠀

• Why location is everything and how the restaurant landed this particular property which had been closed for 25 years⠀

• The challenges of replicating the complex flavors of traditional French dishes without animal ingredients and how they resolved them⠀

• The pros and cons of working together in a family business and the key thing that makes it work so successfully for them⠀

• How the business attracts and retains loyal, long-term employees – and the one requirement all staff need in order to keep their jobs⠀

• How long it took for the restaurant to turn a profit and how it’s been funded to date⠀

• And much more ⠀

In this episode I interview @johnoberg, a #vegan social media marketing expert and influencer in Washington, DC 😀⠀

He’s the former Director of New Media for the international animal protection organization, The Humane League. And prior to that, he served as Director of Communications for Vegan Outreach. ⠀

In both these roles, John oversaw social media for the organizations which led to a tenfold increase in following for both of them, as well as over 1 billion impressions of content posted to these pages 🙌⠀

John recently launched his own independent project for animals through Patreon and has provided social media consulting services to non-profit organizations including Veganuary and Million Dollar Vegan. And he now offers these services to vegan businesses and brands.⠀

In this episode, John discusses:⠀

• What vegan brands and businesses can do right now to organically increase followers and engagement – without spending a fortune on paid ads⠀

• Why scheduling tools are important and his recommendation for which one to use⠀

• When and how often you need to post on social media⠀

• How to use hashtags – the right way⠀

• How to work with influencers to ensure you get the best results for your vegan brand⠀

• Why you need to use ‘live’ video and what types of content to share live versus pre-recorded ⠀

• What type of content works best on your Instagram and Facebook feeds, and what works best for ‘stories’ on these platforms ⠀

• And much more⠀

PLEASE READ - Café Kombucha’s not even been open a year and the never-ending supply of support you guys have, never ceases to blow us away on a daily basis. Seriously. You are the reason that the CK is SO darn successful. Aye, we make the food, provide the chairs and wash the dishes but at the end of the day, YOU are who walks in the door, YOU are who spreads the word and YOU are who has made this such a great success story - not only for me, my amazing staff, a previously unloved building, vegans far and wide but for Elgin as a town too.⠀

(This sounds like a break up letter but we assure you, it is not…)⠀

As with all businesses, new and old, we’ve had our ups and we’ve had our downs and you’ve been there at every junction we cross. The success of Café Kombucha has seen a good and steady income but the downside is that we now have to register for #VAT. The end of August is the official registration date, and it is with a great sadness, that our prices will have to endure a wee bit of a hike to keep us as an active eatery, and to ensure we stay in line with the legal obligations that the HMRC impose. As we already do, we will try to find savings where-ever we can without jeopardising the quality of our food or the local businesses who provide us with external supplies.⠀

As most of you know, we have no control over this necessary deed and if we don’t increase prices, we will no longer be able to trade.⠀

Moving forward - we are planning to close for a week from the 1st to the 9th September. Partly to put our head in our hands and ‘tut’ and ‘sigh’ involuntarily, but mostly, for a super deep clean and a menu restructure.⠀

We will re-open on the 10th September with a fresh menu and super shiny café once again!⠀

We hope you understand and welcome any questions or suggestions you may have to assist us on this necessary and legal way. Sarah, Thomas and Team CK x

In this episode of Vegan Business Talk, I interview Simon Newstead, founder of @bitesociety, a new #vegan food product company in Melbourne, Australia.⠀

A vegan for more than 10 years, Simon’s background is in technology. He’s a co-founder of Frenzoo, a mobile games studio in Hong Kong that has been in operation since 2008. ⠀

In addition, he’s an angel #investor and supporter of other companies including Ocean Hugger Foods, Shiok Meats, Kinds of Grace and Hungry Planet. ⠀

Bite Society, a zero-profit company, was started in 2018 and launched its first products, milky chocolate balls and a chocolate block earlier this year.⠀

Simon’s goal is to lower the price of vegan goods and he hopes to inspire other founders and projects through transparency and open sharing, including the company’s financials. To this end, he’s charting the journey of Bite Society via his Vegan Startup podcast.⠀

In this episode Simon discusses:⠀

• The key mistake many startups make and how to avoid it⠀

• The pros and cons of either you or others promoting your products as the vegan version of well-known non-vegan products⠀

• How to find a co-packer that helps you to keep costs down⠀

• How to calculate your margins and profit – and what costs to include that many vegan entrepreneurs don’t do which can result in a business failing⠀

• How to sell direct to retailers – without going door-to-door in person⠀

• The low-budget marketing strategy he used to gain traction for Bite Society and how to do this right⠀

• How the ‘zero profit’ company model works⠀

• And much more⠀

Enjoy! 😊⠀

In this episode of Vegan Business Talk, I give you some tips on how to respond to queries and callouts from journalists who are working on stories and need expert comment or case studies.⠀

It’s one of the easiest ways to get free #publicity for your #vegan brand. You don’t even have to pitch the journalist or producer a story from scratch – they’re already working on something and are looking for experts in their field to comment or to showcase products.⠀

In this episode, I cover:⠀

• Where you can find queries and callouts from journalists – for free⠀

• The differences between the different query/callout platforms⠀

• How to choose which queries to respond to⠀

• The key strategies you need to use to maximize your chances of being chosen and featured ⠀

• What you must include in your responses to queries⠀

• And much more⠀

In this episode of Vegan Business Talk, I give you some tips on how to respond to queries and callouts from journalists who are working on stories and need expert comment or case studies.⠀
⠀
It’s one of the easiest ways to get free #publicity for your #vegan brand. You don’t even have to pitch the journalist or producer a story from scratch – they’re already working on something and are looking for experts in their field to comment or to showcase products.⠀
⠀
In this episode, I cover:⠀
⠀
•	Where you can find queries and callouts from journalists – for free⠀
⠀
•	The differences between the different query/callout platforms⠀
⠀
•	How to choose which queries to respond to⠀
⠀
•	The key strategies you need to use to maximize your chances of being chosen and featured ⠀
⠀
•	What you must include in your responses to queries⠀
⠀
•	And much more⠀

In this episode I interview Annie Ryu, founder of @thejackfruitco in Boulder, Colorado in the US. ⠀

Annie started the company in 2011 while traveling to India as a pre-med student and trying her first #jackfruit. She discovered that this large fruit had many nutritional and ecological benefits, but also that the majority of jackfruit grown in India was going to waste. ⠀

Passionate about global health, Annie saw this as an opportunity to improve lives so while she was still attending Harvard, she began building distribution systems, improving market opportunities for farmers, and creating a working international supply chain to make jackfruit more available around the world. The Jackfruit Company currently works with over 1,000 farming families to supply jackfruit to over 6,000 retailers in the US.⠀

The company makes a range of #vegan products from jackfruit – which has been compared to pulled pork and other shredded meats – that are positioned as healthy, #ethical and #sustainable. ⠀

In this interview, which was recorded live at the recent 2019 @plantbasedworldexpo in New York, Annie discusses:⠀

• The challenges involved in creating a company based on a product that few people know anything about⠀

• Why marketing a product solely as being ethical isn’t always enough for consumers and the changes she had to implement to make jackfruit more appealing⠀

• The importance of hiring local expertise to scale up the supply chain⠀

• The different stages and methods she’s used to raise capital and hire key strategic staff⠀

• Why she avoids using meat-based names for the company’s products⠀

• And much more⠀

Riverdel - Fine Foods. Dairy Free.

I WENT TO A VEGAN CHEESE STORE! Those are words I never thought I’d utter 😊 Had a fabulous afternoon checking out @riverdelcheese’s original location in Brooklyn, and its new second location in Essex Market in the lower east side, Manhattan. As well as a vast array of delicious, amazing #vegan artisanal cheeses of all kinds at both locations, the Essex Market one sells cheeses by the pound like traditional cheesemongers. How fabulous is that! ⠀

So good to see so many cruelty-free tasty cheeses from so many vegan #entrepreneurs. ⠀

WATCH my 3-min video of all the cheeses, including a taste test of 3 of them here: bit.ly/riverdelkf⠀

In this episode, which was recorded live in person in New York at the inaugural @plantbasedworldexpo, I interview Michael Schwarz, founder of @treelinecheese in upstate New York.⠀

Michael’s discovery of the cruelty involved in dairy production and the harm animal agriculture causes to the environment were key drivers for his decision to give up not just milk, but his entire career as an intellectual property attorney, and focus on #vegan cheese making. ⠀

Raised in South Africa, Michael inherited his activism from his parents. His father, Harry Schwarz, was a key figure in the fight to end apartheid and a long-time friend and colleague of Nelson Mandela. ⠀

Michael moved to the US in the 1980s at the height of apartheid’s power, went to law school and for over 25 years, practiced IP law in Dallas, London, New York and Washington. ⠀

In 2012, he began to experiment with fermenting cashew nuts, culminating in the launch of Treeline, which is now a national brand, available in grocery and specialty stores across the US, including Whole Foods, Kroger, and many independent health food stores and small chains.⠀

In this interview Michael talks about:⠀

• How he got his first distributor and retailer (a process that involved losing a lot of money but was necessary)⠀

• Why learning to say no if you don’t have the capacity or finances to fulfil orders is better for your brand in the long term⠀

• How a negative experience at trial during his lawyer days is the reason why Treeline has never failed to fulfil an order to date⠀

• Why the company doesn’t use dairy cheese names such as ‘brie’ or ‘camembert’ for its products⠀

• And much more⠀

Enjoy! 😊⠀

Every week, I like to listen to an inspiring podcast. Mastering the Entrepreneurial Mindset with Michelle Hickey is a gem of a podcast because it allowed me to spend some time thinking introspectively. ⠀

There was a segment that talked about how overcomplicating things can be a tactic of avoidance. ⠀

Instantly I thought, oh no I might be guilty of this! So, I started to deconstruct a few of my projects to make sure I wasn’t missing the simpler solution. Woala, I had a breakthrough! I found a way to launch a few live in-person workshops 6-months earlier than planned. ⠀

Even if you’ve heard a few mindset podcast before, listen to this one because it isn’t always about hearing something new. Sometimes, it is just the right inspiration at the right moment. ⠀

• How she decides what types of content and brands to feature on the site⠀

• How the site has been funded to date ⠀

• The benefits the company has gained from content retargeting and native advertising⠀

• And much more ⠀

Enjoy! 😊⠀ ⠀

In this episode of Vegan Business Talk, I share a talk I gave recently to a group of #vegan business owners and #entrepreneurs on what to include on the ‘About’ page of your website.⠀

It’s a question I get asked a lot by people, including my coaching and consulting clients and students on my Vegans in the Limelight online PR course and group coaching program.⠀

The talk is also available as a video and as a blog post and you can find those on the show notes page for this episode of the podcast.⠀

Among the things I discuss are:⠀

• Why the ‘About’ page of your website is so important⠀ • What NOT to include on your ‘About’ page ⠀ ⠀ • How to make your ‘About’ page compelling for your customers and clients ⠀

• Why your ‘About’ page shouldn’t be all about you⠀

• Examples of an ‘About’ page for a service provider and for a product maker⠀

• Why your story as the business owner is important and you can no longer hide behind your company or brand⠀

• And much more⠀

Enjoy! 😊⠀

This episode of Vegan Business Talk features a recording of a panel discussion I hosted last year at the 2018 @vegan_festival_adelaide, called the Future of Plant Based Business.⠀

My guests on the panel were Seth Tibbott, founder of iconic American #vegan meat brand @the_tofurky_company which is sold internationally, and @caledrouin, a plant-based consultant in Brisbane, Australia who works with food retailers and distributors.⠀

Among the topics we discussed are:⠀

• What’s driving the take-up of vegan/plant-based living⠀

• What plant-based products are currently ‘hot’ right now⠀

• What to be aware of when dealing with large supermarket chains⠀

• Strategies for getting your products into retailers⠀

• How will ‘clean’ meat compete against plant-based meat?⠀

• Pushback from animal agriculture industries in banning terms like ‘meat’ and ‘milk’ on products unless they come from animals⠀

• What’s happening in non-food-related vegan business sectors and the opportunities this provides⠀

• And more⠀

Enjoy! 😊⠀ ⠀

How To Build A Community on Instagram ⁠
.⁠
You want more followers? 🤗⁠
Then, you need to change your way to see things. ⁠
You don’t need more “followers” you need a community. ⁠
.⁠
How do you do that? 🧐⁠
You need an audience of like-minded individuals and you need to provide them with relevant content. ⁠
. ⁠
🔸Here are some tips: ⁠
Know who you’re talking to: be crystal clear on what is your mission and who you want to attract ⁠
Search and follow pertinent hashtags: when you know who you are talking to you need to understand how they think and what they are looking for ... Hashtags ;) ⁠
Engagement, support, and gratitude: yeah, Instagram is not just about pretty pictures. If you want a community you need to engage with them - show them you are interested in them and that care about them ⁠
Be yourself: share what makes you unique, be personal, be you! 🤪⁠

Do you have a community? If not what could you implement today to make it happen? ⁠
Let me know in the comments 👇⁠

Thought I'd share a more personal post with you this afternoon, focusing on #selfbelief... I started @vegannews.com.au just one year ago, mostly as a response to my growing dissatisfaction and frustration in the corporate world. In my heart of hearts - I wanted to dedicate my energies to the protection of our planet, and our animal friends. 🌏🐬💕 *
*
*
*
*Fast forward to 2019, and this blog continues to attract readers from around the world (some of whom I've been lucky to meet IRL - and it still blows my mind every time that ACTUAL human beings read the words I put out there in the universe!) Professionally, I've also been incredibly fortunate to establish work for myself as a #PR and #Communications consultant, partnering exclusively with #veganfriendly brands and organisations. 😄💪🥑 *
*
*
*
*If you told me what life had in store 12 months ago, I would've laughed and shrugged the idea away. However, the weird thing was, once I made the choice in my own mind to commit to making #veganism and actual career focus - doors opened to me without too much exertion. If you're reading this, and you're feeling disconnected or disconcerted as I was - I can only encourage you to give yourself permission to take a leap of faith. Honestly, in this crazy world you just never know where you might end up! ☺️🙏🌟 @ingkabali *⁣

It is so good to take a step back and look at what you achieved! ⁣
I have a tendency to be too focused on the "destination" rather than the "journey". Thanks to my lovely coach @jennafayehandel I decided to take time to reflect on my Q1 and be kinder to myself! ⁣

After a career in the #creative #media, including @mtv, Joshua Katcher developed an appreciation for fashion in 2008 and started men’s ethical #lifestyle website @thediscerningbrute.
The blog quickly established him as a pioneer in the field of #ethical, #sustainable #fashion and just two years later in 2010 he launched the @brave_gentleman #vegan label and online store, using ‘future wool’, ‘future leather’ and ‘future suede’. He’s also adjunct professor at @parsons_fashion.

In this interview he discusses: the key things you must have and do to create a successful business, despite having no previous experience in a particular industry; the challenges involved in opening a physical store; the one thing that will set you apart from other brands; why crowdfunding is not necessarily a good strategy for fashion brands; a relatively unknown yet surprisingly beneficial source of loans; the importance of pre-orders to grow your business; and much more. Enjoy :) Available on iTunes, Stitcher Radio & Tunein, or on the VeganBusinessMedia.com website.

Andy Tabar, runs his business @compassionco, an #organic, US-made #vegan clothing line, out of his van while traveling across the US to vegfests each year. ⠀

Andy is an animal rights activist who completed three trips with @farmusa’s 10 Billion Lives tour, traveling to nearly every continental state and having more than 10,000 one-on-one conversations educating college students and concert-goers about the cruelty inherent in animal agriculture. ⠀

His business is very much connected with this activism by producing t-shirts featuring messages that start conversations around veganism or the treatment of animals and which are made as ethically as possible. He’s also the co-host of the @thebeardedvegans podcast, with Paul Steller, in which the pair discuss a range of vegan issues. ⠀

In this interview Andy talks about: how his experience touring with punk rock bands has helped him in running his business; the challenges and benefits of running your business from a van; how he handles scaling up the business, especially with physical location and inventory storage limitations; the one person he hired early on that was instrumental in helping him to run the business effectively; how taking an intersectional approach to his business, in manufacturing, operations, and marketing, gives the brand a competitive edge; how to maintain a relationship when you’re on the road for several months a year; and much more. Enjoy & share :)⠀

LOOK what just arrived! These are the BEST #vegan boots I've ever owned! They are so 'me'! :) These gorgeous babies are from @veganstyleoz’s house brand #Zette (named after owner Justin Ⓥ Mead's rescue cat - she is herself most glamorous) in Melbourne, Australia. The new range has just launched and there's a range of styles to suit everyone. Obviously the #glitter boots are my personal favourite - they #sparkle so beautifully in the light. ⠀

Vegan Style is an awesome company whose products are made from high-quality, durable materials (not cheap PVC), contain no animal materials (even the glue is vegan), made in factories with fair labour practices and are eco-friendly. I love this approach: good for people, #animals and planet. The shoes are more expensive than Kmart, Target or Payless - but as Justin says, remember that someone, somewhere is paying for your bargain. And, VS has introduced a payment plan so you don't have to splash out in one go. ⠀

I highly recommend supporting this #ethical shoe store. And yes, they ship internationally too! Finally, while I'm not being paid to spruik them, I am a brand ambassador for these boots (I mean, who better, really, hehe! :)) and did get them for free, but as you know, I'm a HUGE fan of #bling, glitter and sparkles, so I would have bought them anyway and squealed about them. Can't wait to show them off in public. Here's the link to Vegan Style website where you can check out all their wares: https://veganstyle.com.au/⠀

How does a #vegan chef get to work with the likes of the Four Seasons hotel chain? @lesliedurso, a vegan #chef and wellness expert in Los Angeles, has done just that.⠀

An Italian-American, Leslie has eaten #plantbased since the age of eight and you may remember her from her entertainment days when she starred as Leslie the lab girl, on the popular US TV show Bill Nye, the science guy that ran from 1993 to 1998.⠀

It was during the show that Leslie discovered her love of education and shifted from science to plant-based food. After establishing herself as a private chef for the NYC and Hollywood elite, Leslie began hosting cooking segments on television and online, including her show Accidentally Vegan for the FabFitFunTV membership community.⠀

Leslie is currently the vegan chef at the Four Seasons, Punta Mita @fspuntamita
in Mexico and a chef partner at plantlabculinary culinary school.⠀

In this interview Leslie discusses: How she became a chef despite not going to #culinary school; how she got the gig at the Four Seasons hotel; the key factors that have made the Four Seasons job such a success that it resulted in her becoming the hotel’s #wellness ambassador; why she refuses to allow a separate vegan menu at hotels and restaurants and instead insists vegan dishes are part of the main menu; why she prefers to partner with culinary schools and other collaborators instead of running and operating her own platforms; how to attract the right partners for your business; and much more⠀

Enjoy & share 😊 ⠀
