Vegan recipe app Food Monster launches in Canada, worldwide release set for April

How often does an app launch first in Canada? Most media app, even for Canadian newspapers, tend to launch worldwide at the same time.

But Food Monster (Canadian App Store link) from One Green Planet LLC has launched its app for Canada today, with the worldwide launch scheduled for April 22.

Why Canada first? After the start-up is based out of NYC. Maybe it is a way to test out the app for a while before launching worldwide. Maybe. But the app caught my attention because, while I may not be a vegan (or vegetarian) I know someone who is and who could use some inspiration for new recipes. I’ll be passing on this story to her, though since she is in California she’ll have to wait to download the app.

Here is the announcement for the launch of Food Monster in Canada:

Not only is One Green Planet’s Food Monster App literally a feast for the eyes, but it also marks a growing food trend. “Meat consumption has been on the decline in Canada and the United States, and according to recent studies, nearly a third of the North American population is ‘flexitarian,’ and prefer a diet dominated by plant-based foods. The future of food is here — and it’s vegan,” added Nil Zacharias, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of One Green Planet.

Thanks to the Food Monster App, eating plant-based is easier than ever. Get ready for a drool-worthy experience because vegan never looked this good!

    One Green Planet is a great site and I’m very excited that they’ve launched a vegan cooking app. Much easier than trying to ‘filter’ to find vegan recipes on other sites/apps.
