Happy Veggie World

This place is in the warehouse units on the corner of #6 Road and Cambie in Richmond, BC. I believe they are Buddhists and they supply many of the vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the Lower Mainland.

They have a huge selection of soy products, and vegetarian versions (made from soy and other ingredients) of meat, seafood, etc.

Most of their products are vegan, but some contain egg and/or dairy so be sure to check the ingredients and to ask questions if you need help. Besides the awesome name 😀 the products are great, the staff are very nice and personable and the prices are reasonable. I have been going there for a few years.

Here is a Google Map of the location:

Avoid: Yves Veggie Round & Patties

Filed under: Food — Tags: , , , , , , — vegconsumer @ 5:22 am

Hi 🙂

I used to love having Yves Veggie Ground Round and Patties but recently I have noticed the packaging says "May contain eggs."

Some products like bread say "may contain trace amounts of egg," which seems to be an allergy alert – but this says simply "eggs," not "trace amounts of egg," so I am more suspicious. I am going to try to get in touch with Yves because unfortunately I think a lot of strict vegetarians continue to consume their product without knowing about this change.
