The vegetarians Association of Ghana, VegGhana, on Friday the 1st of December, 2017 held a grand exhibition dubbed “VegFest 2017” at the premises of Christ The King Catholic Church to commemorate the annual National Farmers’ Day Celebration in Ghana. VegGhana is a formidable group of vegetarians that serves as an umbrella body for all vegetarians in the country. Present at the highly successful fair were several exhibitors of various vegetarian products in addition to health and welness services and products.
