Veganism is definitely on the rise, and it seems that with more and more people embracing this approach to life, there is a bigger demand for businesses that take an ethical and vegan approach to what they offer.

Are you someone who is thinking about setting up a vegan business? Not sure where to start with your business? To help inspire you, we have put together 5 inspiring vegan startup ideas that you might be able to try out for yourself.

A vegan lifestyle consultant
With more and more people deciding that they want to become vegan, it makes sense that they are going to need to have somewhere to help them transition into the lifestyle and make informed choices each step of the way. If you have been vegan for some time and you feel comfortable guiding others in their choices, then this is a great way to set up a business. You could offer an online support network or perhaps a one-to-one face to face approach, whichever suits your personality and skills.

Vegan gift baskets and hampers
Finding gifts and food hampers that are suitable for a vegan can be tricky. This is why setting up a vegan gift basket or hamper company is a great idea. You can source vegan products, perhaps looking in your local area and then put them together to make a variety of gift baskets and hampers, all of which fit in with vegan choices.

Vegan cleaning company
More households now have a cleaner, which means that running a cleaning company has become a great business start-up idea, across the board. However, there does seem to be a lack of vegan cleaning companies out there. Those who only use vegan products to clean and tidy up their client’s homes. If cleaning is something that you are happy to do, then why not choose this as your business idea?

Vegan pet food products
Being a vegan doesn’t have to stop with just yourself, you can switch your pet to a vegan lifestyle too and help them to feel the benefit. That said, there are not a lot of vegan pet foods out there that you can choose from. If you are passionate about pets and feel that you have the creative flair to make some pet food products for them, then why not make this your vegan business startup idea?

Vegan home cooking
One of the biggest misconceptions about becoming a vegan is that you are going to be incredibly limited on what you can eat. Of course, without knowing much about it, you may find that you are stuck on what to cook, which is why a vegan home cooking business is a great idea. Perfect for those who are new to the lifestyle, or who are stuck on things to cook, you can make meals that are not only healthy, but that are tasty too. That way, people can learn more about the things that they can cook themselves and try them out at home.

As you can see, there are plenty of vegan business startup ideas out there for you to try out. You need to find a part of the market that appeals most to you and that you feel that you can run with passion and pride. In no time at all, you will have a successful business that you will be incredibly proud to call your own.
