An all-vegan supermarket opened in Seoul, South Korea last week, as part of the country's
burgeoning vegan movement.

Vegan Space

The shop,
Vegan Space, is in the Haebangchon district of the Soul - which has a population
of 10 million.

Vegan Space's offerings include plant-based products such as soap, canned goods, cereals, pasta, and
nondairy milks - all of which consumers can take home in environmentally friendly shopping bags.

On the rise

Veganism is
a movement on the rise in South Korea - despite the fact that it was labeled
one of the world's 'worst countries' for vegan by Huffington Post just four
years ago.

The country
is now host to a number of vegan festivals each year, a growing number of plant
based restaurants, and - as of last week - the nation's first fully vegan
grocery store.
