Croatian President Goes Vegan

image_2_8246Croatia’s President Ivo Josipović got a better understanding of the eating habits of the nations vegetarians and vegans recently when he was treated to a vegan lunch in his office in Zagreb.

Representatives of the group Animal Friends, media representatives and a group of citizens as part of the “Coffee with the President” joined Josipović for the lunch, which included an array of steaks and other dishes prepared exclusively with ingredients from plant origin.

At the lunch, which is served as an educational about the vegan diet for the President, Josipović together with Animal Friends invited citizens to visit ZeGeVege Festival, a sustainable living festival, which every year attracts over 30,000 visitors, and will be held on Trg bana Jelacica in Zagreb, on 6-7 September. Animal Friends says there is around 160 thousand vegetarians and vegans in Croatia.

“The lunch is an act of support from President Ivo Josipović for a healthier, cleaner and more compassionate planet that we live on, which shows that Croatia is also on the way to necessary ecological awareness, and therefore also universal sustainability,” said Animal Friends.
