Saturday August 26th was an absolutely beautiful summer day here in Calgary, AB. and SpiraVeg was thrilled to spend it at the Calgary Vegetarian Food Festival, educating the community on the benefits of fresh spirulina! We spent the day talking all things health and wellness and provided free samples of our delicious, nutrient dense blue-green algae!
Most people couldn’t believe that fresh Spirulina could be cultivated right here in Calgary, AB! We spent many hours explaining the nutritional difference between dry format and fresh Spirulina and loved the enthusiasm and interest from the health minded crowd. The people that were familiar with the dry format version couldn’t believe our product was completely odourless and tasteless – it’s just like drinking a glass of (green) water! It was amazing to see people’s facial expressions change from hesitant to surprised and then absolutely delighted by our product and we can’t wait to get it into even more hands!
The main takeaway from the day was recognizing that many people are still entirely unfamiliar with Spirulina and the immense health benefits it holds. This is why the SpiraVeg mission is so clear – to impact world health by providing the most convenient, high quality Spirulina products to consumers across the globe, so that everyone, everywhere can access superfoods everyday.
Our next public appearance will be at VegFest on September 23rd – a highly anticipated vegan festival here in Calgary. Expect tons of samples, inspirational speakers, local musicians, a kids activity area and more! We hope to see you there, but in the meantime, if you’re interested in learning more about SpiraVeg, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or head to our shop page to see where you can find us!
