The Rise of Vegan Businesses with Jonny Edwards of Nuzest-USA

Yes, it’s true! Vegan businesses are on the rise!  When Larissa and I became vegetarians in 2013, there weren’t nearly as many vegan businesses or products on the market as there are today. I remember looking for vegan fashion and was very disappointed at the lack of available products.

Flash forward to 2019 and we seem to be in a vegan product and services boom! It’s so encouraging to see new choices popping up in so many different industries.  

A 2019 article on Forbes stated that U.S consumers spent nearly $1.9 billion on plant-based milks and $3.3 billion on plant-based foods in 2018.  Additionally, the number of people who identified as “vegan” jumped from 1% in 2014 to 6% in 2017. Pretty awesome!

Who Is Jonny Edwards?


Today on the show, we are excited to talk to Jonny Edwards, the CEO of one such vegan company, Nuzest-USA.  You may recall that we recently partnered with Nuzest-USA because we liked their products and mission VERY much!

In this episode, we talk to Jonny about how he became vegan, how he became CEO of Nuzest-USA, and what trends he sees in our plant-based future.
