Slovakia is a small country in the heart of Europe with many passionate vegans. The fact is that the majority of Slovak people live on a meat-based diet. The interest in vegan and raw food is only growing. Some may think that it is difficult to be a vegan in Slovakia but it is not entirely true. The selection of vegan products on the market is not bad but it could definitely be improved.
