Shopping Guide

Here’s what to know before you head to the store.

Find Vegan Seafood in Stores

While not as widely available as other vegan meats, vegan seafood products are showing up more and more at grocery stores and big-box stores. You’ll find them in three places; the refrigerated, freezer, and near other canned meats in the dry sections.

Typically, grocery stores stock vegan seafood options near non-vegan versions.
