World's Biggest Vegan Retail Shop Opens in Australia

The Cruelty Free Shop in Melbourne will be home to a collection of 3500 vegan products including more than 50 cheeses, cruelty-free clothing, cosmetics, and more.

The world’s largest all-vegan store The Cruelty Free Shop (CFS) is slated to open on April 12 in Melbourne, Australia. The shop is a second incarnation of CFS’ smaller Melbourne location that the company says has outgrown the space it previously occupied and will sell 3500 vegan products and 1000 new items. Shoppers will have access to more than 50 vegan cheeses, fresh produce, baked goods, local and international vegan packaged products, cruelty-free clothing, vegan cosmetics, household items, and will host in-store tastings of new products every Saturday. Vegan entrepreneur Jessica Bailey founded CFS as an online store from her spare bedroom in Sydney in 2001 and has since expanded the store to five physical locations in Australia. The growth of veganism on the continent is evident as new vegan restaurants—such as Melbourne’s first all-vegan pizzeria Red Sparrow that opened last month—continue to sprout up across Australia. According to CFS, its new Melbourne location will be larger than Berlin’s Veganz—an all-vegan supermarket that opened in 2011 and currently boasts several locations across Europe.
