The world’s first all-Vegan supermarket chain, Veganz, will be opening up in Portland, Oregon this year.

Veganz was founded in Berlin Germany in 2011 by Jan Bredack, a previous Mercedes-Benz manager and meat lover. After changing his entire lifestyle and writing a book (Vegan for everyone: Why we should live right) he was inspired to open an entire store that only sold plant-based foods. He hopes that it will provide easier access for people to shop for vegan foods.

Bredack claims that 80 percent of his customers are not vegan or vegetarian, but regardless everyone can find a huge assortment of food products at Veganz. They boast importing goods from 30 countries, including non-food items like cosmetics. They offer more than 6,000 vegan products.

What’s more, Veganz plans to open a shoe store, clothing store, and restaurant in Portland this year as well. Bredack even wants to have food trucks for food products on the go and catering opportunities:

Going vegan – or vegetarian – is great for the environment. A diet rich in meat and dairy can lead to an enormous increase in greenhouse gases from agriculture. A shift away from these diets would create less pressure to create farmland and there would be lower rates of disease links with obesity and cardiovascular hazard.

Veganz currently has three supermarkets in Berlin, and one each in Hamburg, Munic, Frankfurt. Several more stores are set to open in Vienna, London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Barcelona, Milan, and Copenhagen this year.
