it may sound surprising for many, but it’s the truth. One of the popular beach destinations in India Goa has been declared as the vegan-friendly state of the year 2020 by People of Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
One of the country’s top tourism destinations, #Goa, has been recognized by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (@PetaIndia) as India’s “most #vegan-friendly state” for the year 2020, an official statement said on Saturday. Said a statement from PETA INDIA on its twitter account.
On Saturday PETA India also felicitated Chief Minister Pramod Sawant for providing a vegan-friendly environment in the state where both humans and animals can thrive.
“Goa is quickly becoming a top dining destination for the increasing number of people interested in the healthy and cruelty-free fare. PETA India is recognizing Goa for leading by example and showing other states how to meet the growing demand for vegan food and fashion in style,” said PETA’s India vegan outreach co-ordinator Dr. Kiran Ahuja
He also continued saying “In today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, fish suffocate on the decks of fishing boats, pigs are stabbed in the heart as they scream in pain, and calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth.”
It is more surprising that the beach state has now many vegan-friendly restaurants such as Zest, Blue Planet Cafe, Bean Me Up, Soul Booster Bar, Cafe Tato’s, Chia Lounge. They also have vegetarian-friendly cafes which you can visit when you plan to visit Goa.
