Winter Olympics Vegan Food

Concession stands serve veggie dogs and vegan chili at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are the first games to offer fans and athletes organic, vegan food options at concession stands. Vegan menu items include veggie dogs and chili made by Yves Veggie Cuisine, and salty snacks from Terra Chips. Canadian natural food supplier Hain Celestial Canada owns both companies, and has exclusive official supplier sponsorship rights over organic packaged foods sold at the games. Yves specializes in meat-free foods, which ballparks and sporting arenas around the country are adding to concession stand menus. This is the first year that Yves products have been sold at an Olympic event.
