Producer of plant-based dairy products Alpro recently introduced another new product – vegan quark! Although officially called ‘plant-based alternative to quark’ in order not to get sued by evil dairy corporations. They named it Alpro Go On and it’s based on soy. Ideal for yummy desserts or kwarktaart!
In Amsterdam find it at Albert Heijn and Jumbo supermarkets.
Thanks to Gewoon Vegan for the news! Visit this website for an overview of vegan products easily available in Dutch supermarkets. ❤️
With rumours going back to 2013 there’s still no Veganz in Amsterdam! You know the all vegan supermarket one can find in Berlin and other places in Germany. And nowadays even in Czech Republic and Austria. But a month ago Veganz announced it will have a few of its own products (16 to be precise) in some Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Netherlands. In Amsterdam you can find it at the Albert Heijn at Gelderlandplein (Buitenveldert) and Osdorpplein (Osdorp). Disappointment: not all of the 16 products are being sold – at Gelderlandplein none of their chocolate! Hopefully the assortment will improve eventually.
Is it a test for a possible upcoming store? We’ll keep you updated.
In Amsterdam the organic stores usually offer the greatest choice in specific vegan products. Ordinary supermarkets have also a lot to offer, but sometimes you have to know where to find particular products.
Did you know you can find vegan chocolate-hazelnutspread just in the supermarket? The one from brand ‘1 De Beste’ is available in local Dirk van den Broek and Dekamarkt supermarkets. The ‘Markant’ brand is available at Vomar and Coop. The (organic) soy ‘Penotti’ is available at Albert Heijn. Enjoy!
This feels weird… checking out the cheese department at the supermarket. Vegan cheese is not only sold at organic or vegan stores but in supermarkets in town as well! Jumbo has Wilmersburger cheese for a while now in most of their stores. And recently the news spread one can order Wilmersburger at the Albert Heijn as well. Just go to the help desk in the shop and ask for it. A few Deen supermarkets also sell Wilmersburger. When calling today the one at Mosveld (Amsterdam North) confirmed they have it in their store, the other stores in Amsterdam don’t have it (yet?).
Station Amsterdam Centraal, a.k.a. Central Station. Whether you’re only passing through on the way to Amsterdam North, or just arrived in town by train, this is a place many people pass by. It’s currently undergoing a long-time period of reconstruction but some time ago some important parts where reopened again. As expected, more shops. But also more vegan food options to be found! These are the highlights. Read more
