    Meet Our Guest: Juan Bautista Piqué

    The company "Un Mundo Vegano" ("One Vegan World" in spanish) starts as a response to make it easy for people to experience veganism in latin america. Juan Bautista Piqué, founder, was a heavy meat eater and one day changed his diet (after feeling much better physically and emotionally without eating meat), but without knowing "how to do it". Un Mundo Vegano helps people experience veganism in three areas: #1 - Information and Education: through online courses and "one on one" assessments / #2 - Products: informing of vegan products and soon distributing also products / #3 - Places: informing people of places to eat a delicious vegan meal.
