Notes from the organisers:

Forum origin

Xiamen has a great many vegetarian food restaurants whose number ranks top in China. In the past two years, the concept of healthy life was greatly promoted by this fair. The number of people who eat and advocate vegetarian food is increasing. More and more green and healthy food is appearing. Moreover, eating vegetarian food is no longer related with religion but a new style of healthy life, as well as a modern fashion of global diet.

The International Vegetarian Forum in 2009, five speakers from England, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, Xiamen gave perfect speaches with the subject of “Feeling the vegetarian wold, Sharing the healthy life”. There were three parts:New Concept of International Vegetarianism, Keep a Balanced Vegetarian Diet With Nutrition, The Development Status and Future of Vegetarian Industry.Vegetarians from home and abroad attended the forum enthusiastically.
