What was once just a small shop on Calle Compañía, El Cambio has grown to become a large supermarket on Calle Carretería with a large selection of vegan and ecological products.
The self-proclaimed “vegan and organic supermarket with most variety in Malaga” was conceived with the “understanding that we are part of nature and responsible for it”.
All types of dietary needs are catered for whether you’re following a gluten-free, lactose-free or raw food diet.
Run by Raquel Cervantes and her husband, El Cambio is a vegan supermarket in Calle Carretería that stocks ecologically sourced groceries, supplements and more. It even sells ethically produced cosmetics.
“At the beginning, mostly older people came here,” said Raquel, “but a few years ago our clientele changed. We now have a lot of young people and also many foreigners, but increasingly more people from here.”
Raquel reckons this is because the number of local associations that encourage meat-free diets is increasing and because there is a growing global trend towards veganism. However, she emphasises that “veganism must not be a trend, but a belief”.
While food is its main speciality, El Cambio also sells cosmetics and household products – all with a commitment to zero waste.
