Fresh restaurants have been serving vegan fare for more than 20 years. A Toronto-mainstay for vegans, vegetarians and those with food allergies and sensitivities, not to mention those just looking for good eats, Fresh has been at the forefront of plant-based food in Canada. Fresh began as a travelling juice bar and has expanded to include four Toronto locations, two in Moscow and more planned for Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. As founder and co-owner Ruth Tal tells me, it wasn’t always easy being first. The mainstream has become more open to the merits of veganism of late, with the likes of Bill Clinton, Beyoncé and food writer Mark Bittman choosing plant-based diets.
