VEGA responds to the Mars fiasco...
For switched on veggies, all of the dairy / beef / veal part of the live / deadstock industry and its output and by-products are objectionable (“Mars back down but vegetarians left baffled”, 21 May 2007). Let us here at VEGA show a leading light to consumers lured by the milky way tainted by ill use of cow and calf in a ruthless exploitation in the interests of intensified production. “Cruelty-free” confections, meat-, dairy-, egg-, and fish-free, are widely and increasingly in the ascendant in shops and supermarkets. Some options shine with fairtrade accreditations. Customers need not be left benighted and baffled: read the labels, choose real chocolate and enjoy. Thumbs down on choc au lait.
