Hello UK-specifically and European forum members,

Where do you do your online vegan shopping in your region? Looking forward to your feedback.

Thanks!

-Robert

I'm from Italy and the only vegan stuffs that I ordered online are some protein powder, bcaas and instant oats from bulkpowders.co.uk, a british store!
I'm very satisfied of their products, though the protein powders are unsweetened and unflavoured, so their taste is not really good.

There are many American stores, with many interesting products that I would buy, but I don't because of customs fees or other problems with customs.

I recently discovered a specialist shop in Newport Pagnell ( a town just on the edges of Milton Keynes in uk ) which sells vega and sun warrior. Unfortunately this is the only store I know of that sells the physical product. As I commute to Milton Keynes for work this doesn't make it a problem.

Apart from that though the only other really good quality protein powder I can get ( store brought as opposed to online) is hemp powder made by uk growers and producers the good hemp company.

My problem is the same as above, if I order from the USA then I get hit with custom tax. I agree the USA has more choices, even getting hold of staples like tempeh or Seitan can be a right royal pain in the butt! :)

Hi vegan rossco,

You can get them both online but I have a food cooperative about 10 mile drive from called dailybread and get tempeh there. Still yet to find wheat gluten to make my own Seitan in a shop though. Holland and barret sell mock duck which is a wheat gluten mock meat - it is not bad but you need to watch the added salt etc

I don't buy much online. Basically just protein power, which I currently buy from Inside Organics.

I buy food in-store, but I'm in London so it's not hard to find what I need in shops. We've got Whole Foods in our neighbourhood and Vx (SSOV) not far from work.

I also only buy proteins online. I try and buy direct from manufacturers. Braham & Murray farm hemp in Devon, and sell protein at http://www.goodwebsite.co.uk/. For pea protein I buy from http://www.pulsin.co.uk.

Cool! Thanks for all the leads. I'm sure this helps many who are outside of the US, especially those in Europe.

Both are expensive but have a large range. I tend to go to local health food shops more than anything
