It may seem at a glance that Veggie World has outgrown its current
space; unfortunately, the cost of operation makes an immediate move
still a dream.
Everett and Anne-Marie continue to work on plans they are not
yet ready to reveal. In association with other health food providers,
they hope to be able to make representation to the government on
their diverse needs. A friendly camaraderie currently exists with the
other local health food providers, and if Everett has his way, this will
eventually see the formation of an association of health food providers.
In the long-term, they hope to expand the number, type and variety of
items offered, and continue attempting to offer these goods at the most
affordable price for everyone. They continue to travel to trade shows
to upgrade their knowledge of the benefits of whole foods.
Getting back to the ice-cream, those who have always enjoyed the
soya alternative will be happy to know that there are now more than
20 colourful flavours, including mango, pineapple orange, pecan,
pumpkin, and apple strudel.
While you enjoy that ice-cream, the staff and proprietors of Veggie
World hope you remember that “your greatest wealth is your health.”
