During this episode of the Vegan Visibility Podcast, Vikas Garg, CEO of aBillion.com, sat down with me to talk about his app, his vision, and the vegan movement. It was a fascinating conversation that shed light on the importance of promoting ethical and sustainable food choices and the role of technology in driving change.
Garg explained that aBillion.com is a platform that empowers consumers to make informed and conscious food choices as well as choices around other products and services that are aligned with the vegan movement and mission.
The app allows users to scan products and learn about various vegan products and services. It also allows them to learn about their ingredients, nutritional information, and ethical ratings. It provides a community platform for sharing recipes, tips, and insights on veganism and sustainable living.
Garg’s vision for aBillion.com is to create a more conscious world where consumers have access to transparent and accurate information about the products they consume. He believes that technology can be a powerful tool in promoting ethical and sustainable food choices and empowering consumers to drive change.
Throughout the conversation, Garg emphasized the importance of the vegan movement and its impact on the food industry. He explained that the movement is growing rapidly and that consumers are becoming more conscious about the impact of their food choices on the environment, animal welfare, and human health.
Garg’s insights on the importance of promoting ethical and sustainable food choices and the role of technology in driving change were eye-opening. His vision for a more conscious food industry, and the work that he and his team are doing through aBillion.com, is truly inspiring and gives hope for a more sustainable and ethical future.
