Our Story
For over a decade, JohnAven, Sharon and Mary were colleagues at two successful startups in San Francisco. They’ve joined forces again to create a company that aligned with their love for animals and good food (with the former not being used for the latter). Throughout their 20+ years as vegetarians/vegans, they’ve encountered small businesses struggling with sourcing vegan products. Vegan Distribution is the solution they offer to support a kinder and more sustainable world.
Vegan Distribution’s logo is inspired by the founders’ animal companions. The V in “Vegan” is represented by rabbit ears, which symbolizes our commitment to listening to your needs and feeback. The D in “Distribution” shows our dogged determination to provide excellent customer service and products.
