Israel's First Vegan Supermarket Opens in Tel Aviv
According to TimeOut, HaGal HaYarok (Green Wave), Israel’s first vegan supermarket, has recently opened up in Tel Aviv and is “destined to be a chain inviting all vegans, vegan-curious, and omnivorous types to find the best vegan products from around the world in one central location–and at notably cheaper prices, too.”
According to the article, founders Eylon Zakzer and Rafael Avraham were inspired by Veganz, and want to show people that “eating vegan can be convenient for everyone.” What can we expect to see in HaGal HaYarok?
On the store’s shelves, you’ll find baked goods of all kinds and hard-to-find Asian, Mexican, and exotic ingredients. There is also a great selection of dairy-free cheeses, ice creams, and a huge assortment of vegan proteins including vegan cold cuts and egg-free omelet mixes. There will be demonstrations for products to encourage people to cook out-of-the-box.
HaGal HaYarok is located at 50 HaCarmel Street in Tel Aviv and Plant Based News adds that Zakzer and Avraham plan to “open an additional five outlets across the country by next year.”
