Restaurant closed and shop was renewed

Posted on 09 / 22 / 2015

The supermarket was completely renewed and the restaurant closed summer 2015.

100% organic supermarket with vegan and cruelty-free shampoo, soap, bodylotion etc. and lots of veg*n burgers, sausages, and other tofu/seitan/lupine products. Also has a very limited range of vegan cheese (Mozzarisella and Smokeyrisella).

Staff is not knowledgable about veganism and cannot tell you if they have certain vegan foodstuff. I asked where the vegan cheese was and one member of the staff said it did not exist in this world and another member of the staff said he was not informed about vegan cheese at Bioplanet. It was simply next to the non-vegan mozzarella.

(Quick note: cheese is nearly never vegetarian in Belgium - if you see "stremsel", Dutch for "rennet", on the ingredient list it's a no-go. Non-animal sources for rennet are hardly used, if it is used it will say "vegetarisch stremsel", Dutch for "vegetarian rennet".)

Pros: Large selection of veg*n foodstuff, Vegan and cruelty-free shampoo etc, 100% organic
Cons: Sells meat, Staff is not helpful

Huge supermarket

Posted on 08 / 14 / 2009

Compared to other heath food shop this is huge. It is actually a complete supermarket. Evereything they sell is organic, not everything is vegetarian though! They also sell organic meat and dairy but still it offers the greatest choice in vegetarian and vegan food you can find. Has several branches in Belgium.

Pros: Huge choice
Cons: Also sells meat
