5. The Raw Circus
Many city dwellers kick-start their healthy diets due to a wakeup call of their own or of their loved ones. This was also the case for Jenny Tan, a brand-agency owner who founded the company following her realisation of how going raw vegan benefited her mother in her cancer recovering. The 100% plant-based raw and vegan service offers three meal plan options depending on your commitment in veganism: Raw Gourmet plan, the Detox/Weight Control plan and Stay Fit plan. It also provides catering services in various formats such as canapés, guilt-free cakes and buffet-style dishes, and we can reveal that the food tastes pretty damn delicious.
