World Vegan Day in Bosnia and Herzegovina??!

Yes, you heard it right!

Yesterday, to mark the World Vegan Day, our association organized the first Vegan Fair in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We would like to thank our exhibitors, Biona Zdrava Hrana, Falafel Restoran, Heljdaeko doo Sarajevo, Hotel Great Wall-Restoran Kineski zid and Bistro Zdravo for a pleasant and adequate cooperation, which resulted in amazing treats prepared for all of our visitors.

Big thanks to our volunteers without whom this event wouldn’t be as successful.

You can see a plethora of colors and tastes on the stands in the photos, which serve as a proof that vegan food really is diverse.

We are happy that even people who aren’t vegan visited our fair and that they were delighted with what they tried. Sometimes you just need to dare to try something new. 🙃



This year's VivaBiH Fest will be held on November 4th and 5th at Hotel Holiday in Sarajevo, under the slogan "Reci DA veganstvu" (Say YES to veganism). WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT THE FESTIVAL? Just like last year, you can expect great educational workshops and panel discussions, vegan food exhibitors and a music and entertainment program, and like last year, the entrance will be FREE.

On Tuesday, August 22, 2023 we celebrated World Plant Milk Day! This day marks the growing popularity of plant-based alternatives to animal milk, and raises awareness of their many health benefits, as well as the benefits for animals and the environment. We celebrated this very important day in the building of Goethe-Institut in Sarajevo on the 22th of August. The workshop was called "Nauči praviti biljna mlijeka uz Vladu" (Learn how to make plant milk with Vlado). Our participants had the opportunity to learn everything about plant-based milk from experts in this field, from production to use!

In order to bring a well-known product closer to the public, but through the prism of truth and without additional decoration and filters, VivaBiH launched a small online campaign on 07.07.2023, called "Tamna strana mliječne čokolade" (The dark side of milk chocolate). The campaign consisted of a one-minute video and several social media posts.
