Petition Tag - frozen food
Consumers choose foods free of animal products for many reasons. Scientific evidence suggests the production of plant-based food contributes significantly less to environmental damage and climate change than animal farming.
Many religions require devotees to adhere to meat and dairy free diets during certain celebrations. People often choose a diet free of animal products for ethical reasons as they don't agree with modern factory farming methods. Health is another major factor. A plant-based diet is completely free from cholesterol.
With plant-based food choices becoming increasingly popular amongst UK consumers, it is time for major food suppliers such as Sainsbury's to answer this call for more vegan choices in their aisles. Brands such as Quorn and Linda McCartney have monopolised UK stores but very few of their items cater to people who want animal-free food.
Sign the petition to urge Sainsbury's to carry vegan food. The petition will be sent to Sainsbury's on your behalf.
You can also email the following Sainsbury's contact to strengthen your request:
Matthew.Smith@sainsburys.co.uk Frozen Meat Buyer
There are now literally hundreds of thousands of vegans in the UK. What we want more than anything when it comes to our food is to be able to walk into the supermarket and pick our food off the shelf just like everyone else. Tesco provide a full and varied range of vegetarian alternatives including burgers, sausages, vege bacon and pies, yet ALL of these products contain milk and/or eggs, meaning the entire range in unsuitable for vegans.
If it costs an extra 20p per pack to make them vegan, we would pay it. If it costs an extra 50p per packet to have egg substitute rather than egg in the burgers, we would pay it.
I want to get as many signatures as possible to send to Tescos (I chose Tesco as they are the largest and most recogniseable supermarket chain in the UK) to show them there is great support for them to convert their vegetarian range to vegan and we will simply queue up at the frozen section to buy their vegan range if only they gave us the chance to do so.
