Where will we find enough food for 9 billion people? By 2050 we'll need to feed two billion more people. How can we do that without overwhelming the planet? When we think about threats to the environment, we tend to picture cars and many different ways other than what is on our plates. 

The reality is, our need for food poses one of the biggest dangers to the planet. Animal agriculture is among the greatest contributors to global warming, emitting more greenhouse gases than all our cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes combined. The environmental challenges posed by animal agriculture are massive, and they’ll only become more pressing as we try to meet the growing need for food worldwide.

That's where Vigo comes in, Vigo is a mobile organic food company that aims to help humanity have access to healthy, exciting, local organic plant based foods on the go. We inspire positive social change within the community by providing personalized dishes. We also do catering for events and teach cooking classes. Our dishes give our customers high-quality meals guided by sustainable principles. We teach our customers how it’s possible to have extraordinarily flavourful, nourishing food that can sustain human beings, without having to cause unnecessary suffering to animals and wasting our limited resources.

Vigo is a community which promotes the need to find a balance between producing more food and sustaining the planet for future generations. This is a pivotal moment when we face unprecedented challenges to food security and the preservation of our global environment.

The good news is that we already know what we have to do. Addressing our global food challenges demands that all of us become more conscious about the food we put on our plates.

We help people make connections between our food and the local farmers who grow it, our food and the land and climate that sustain us.
