Katrina Fox is an award-winning journalist, PR consultant, founder of VeganBusinessMedia.com, host of Vegan Business Talk podcast and author of Vegan Ventures: Start and Grow an Ethical Business, the first global book providing success strategies for aspiring and existing vegan business owners.
She has written extensively for niche and mainstream media for 17 years on animal advocacy and ethical business and was a regular FORBES contributor for 12 months specialising in writing about vegan and plant-based businesses.
Katrina teaches vegan business owners how to do their own PR and get free media coverage through her signature online course and group coaching program Vegans in the Limelight.
She is a regular speaker, MC and panel host at local and international events ranging from vegan festivals and conferences to book launches and trade shows. She hosted a full day of panel discussions at VegFestUK Trade, the UK's first ever trade show at London's Olympia in 2017. In April 2018, she spoke about how to position ethical products and hosted a day of talks at the Naturally Good Expo, Australia's trade show for the natural and organic industry.
She loves glitter, bling and disco.
Vegan living is 'hot' right now. In just the past three to four years veganism has regularly hit the headlines – in a positive way.
With vegan food being served at the BAFTA Awards in the UK, a vegan cheese company getting a deal on the popular US TV show Shark Tank to Bill Gates investing in a company providing vegan alternatives to meat and Beyonce's plant-based food delivery service, the vegan lifestyle is starting to shed its image of bland, drab and unhealthy.
As an ethical vegan since 1996 and a longtime animal rights advocate, journalist and author Katrina Fox's mission is Vegan World Domination where animals are no longer exploited, abused, commodified or killed for human consumption. Ethical businesses play a key role in moving closer to this ideal.
To encourage more people to start and run a business on vegan principles, Fox wrote this 'how to' guide. She conducted extensive interviews with over 60 vegan business owners and entrepreneurs in the US, Canada, Australia and UK, as well as PR and marketing professionals.
Their insights are featured throughout this book, which former VP of Citibank Philip Wollen described as "A timely addition to the reading list of every vegan entrepreneur."
