5 Vegan Grocers for an Affordable Plant-Based Lifestyle

In the age of climate change and sustainability, we’ve all sat down at one point or another to assess our carbon footprint. Some focus on lessening the use of plastic and practicing the 3 Rs. Others opt to switch to plant-based diets due to the environmental impact of eating meat. If you’re able to do the latter, it’s actually one of the best things you can do. However, many face issues with sourcing food. Luckily, the country is slowly gaining access to more and more vegan food options, so you can cook your own vegan meals from home. Our list of the best vegan grocery stores in the Philippines below will help you kick-start that process.

1. The Vegan Grocer

Find a rich selection of meat-free, dairy-free, and egg-free products at The Vegan Grocer in Las Pinas City. This vegan store’s 26-page menu includes vegan meat, vegan seafood, vegan bread, oat milk, and so much more. They also carry other naturally vegan snacks like hummus, fruits, and vegetables. They even have non-food items like hygiene products and household cleaning products, making it your one-stop-shop for eco-friendly shopping.

2. The Green Grocer Manila

The Green Grocer is a delivery-only source of organic food, grass-fed and all-natural meats, farm-direct dairy products, deli items, and many more. Fresh from farms in Benguet, Cavite, Laguna, Tarlac, and more, they deliver to your doorstep every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. They’re not exclusively plant-based, so you still have to discern which products to buy. However, you’d be happy to know that they have a wide vegan selection. This includes already cooked meals like vegan adobo, frozen packs of Beyond Meat, and a variety of vegan cheese.

3. Byemeat.com

Byemeat is an online vegan store with a wide variety of products. They take pride in being one of the few existing vegan shops in the Philippines that price low. This is a huge step so that maintaining a plant-based diet can be more accessible for everyone. Popular vegan products like plant-based meat and dairy are available, and they also carry fresh fruits and vegetables as well as snacks like fries, chilled taho, and the famous Indomie instant noodles.

4. The Plant-Based Pantry

The Plant-Based Pantry is an online vegan store on Instagram that ships within Metro Manila and nearby cities from Monday to Saturday. This vegan grocery store has a wide array of TVP (textured vegetable protein)/soy-protein based from non-GMO soybean products. They offer a lot of plant-based meat from your average burger patty to Filipino favorites like tapa, embotido, and bagoong, and other products like berries, spreads, and pasta sauces. Plus, their Instagram is quite a treat, filled with all kinds of recipe ideas that you can cook with their selection of products. They ship via Lalamove and Grab and allow for pick up in Southville, Pasig.

5. Try Vegan PH

Try Vegan PH is an online vegan grocery with a physical store and cafe in Paranaque. They have a variety of plant-based products like “meat” spreads, vegan bagoong, and plenty of other sauces and cooked meals as well. Try Vegan PH also has zero-waste bath products and a bunch of vegan-themed merch, and is considered one of the best vegan grocery stores in the Philippines. They’re open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 6 PM.
