I'll never forget discovering The Cruelty Free Shop online store back in 2001, when easy access to exciting vegan groceries just didn't exist. For the first time, I could easily buy exciting things (well, they were exciting back then) such as 'Pamarzano' (a now discontinued vegan parmesan - see Bellissimo Parmesan), Lamyong mushroom chunks and Sweet William milk chocolate.
The Cruelty Free Shop product range has come a long way since then, and now boasts over 1500 vegan products which can also be purchased from their recently opened Fitzroy store. Conveniently positioned next door to veg*n fast food joint Lord of the Fries, once inside you'll be greeted shelves and fridge/freezers full of every vegan food stuff you could imagine. Seriously, we even found a vegan tart glaze!
Along with all of the food, you can also purchase vegan handbags, wallets, belts and shoes along with Edgar's Mission fundraising merchandise. Cleaning products, cosmetics, vitamins and books are also on ofr.
As pioneers in the vegan grocery world, we welcome The Cruelty Free Shop to Melbourne and wish them every success.
