Large Dairy Company Ditches Dairy after 90 years and Starts Producing Plant-Based Milks Instead

w600-7ebb8cbe7729[1]

Elmhurst Dairy in Queens has ceased it’s dairy operation after 90 years citing decreased customer demand. CEO Henry Schwartz said the company has been operating at a high cost in recent years and revealed that “Pasteurized fluid milk has sort of gone out of style.”, “we are unable to continue to go on without ongoing losses.” “There isn’t much room for our kind of business. I tried to keep this open because it was my father’s plant and he asked me to do so.” The shutdown reflects ongoing trends in the dairy milk business: increasing consumer awareness of the treatment of cows in the milk industry as well as consumer concern about saturated fat, cholesterol and hormones is leading to declining sales.

The thing is, almond milk can be very expensive to buy and making it at home can be a bloody pain in the a**.

This whole Oregon town is up for sale for $3.8m

_95160916_tiller1[1]

The entire town of Tiller, in the US state of Oregon, has been put up for sale with a price tag of $3.8m. It’s a mostly uninhabited area 225 miles (362 km) south of Portland. The deal includes six houses, a flat, petrol station and a shop. Roughly 250 people live in the surrounding area. But residents began leaving the area after the decline in timber harvesting and the closure of the town’s mill, according to the estate agent. Tiller originally went on the market in 2015 but didn’t include the old primary school building.

Vegan frozen pizza brand is coming to the UK

Screen-Shot-2017-03-15-at-12.41.07-768x502[1]

Norwich-based One Planet Pizza has exceeded its crowdfunding goal of £20,000 by more than £6,000, becoming the UK’s first crowdfunded all-vegan company. The brand’s success stems from incorporating consumer engagement into its business model. “[We] want to fund [our] new venture through ‘veginvestment’ so it is ‘owned’ by the vegan community,” the company stated on its website, as those who are interested can invest for as little as £16. The company are also planning to employ vegans and use vegan suppliers wherever they can. Funding from initial investors—ranging from £16 to £2,000 —makes up 20 percent of the company’s equity. These shareholders gain insider access to the development of the brand and a say in deciding which vegan charity organisations will receive 10 percent of yearly profits via the company’s charity branch, One Planet Pizza Fund.

Vegan blogger Hench Herbivore is working with the company to create protein-loaded pizzas and will serve as a social media marketing advocate, alongside Damien Clarkson of ethical creative studio The Growing Box and YouTuber Bastian Altrock.

Pizzas will feature Bute Island coconut oil-based “Sheese” and wheat-based Vegandeli meat in flavors such as Hawaiian, Exotic Funghi Feast, Three Shreese Margherita, and Mediterranean Roasted Vegetable. In addition to pizzas, the brand also produces a line of vegan “redi-meals,” which will be available for purchase at local retail outlets and by delivery in parts of England.

Their pizzas are currently available in 10 stores across Norfolk. You can take a look at their stockists here. They will also be attending VeggieWorld on the 8th and 9th of April!

Raw Twix Bars With Banana Date Caramel (Vegan + GF)

twix-1198x800[1]
It’s candy bar time. I present to you, my Raw Vegan Twix Bars with Banana Date Caramel. Now, I know regular Twix Bars don’t have a single banana molecule in them, but I figured I’d change it up a little. Regular date caramel is so boring. Yawn. I also know that Twix bars usually come in a pair of fingers (ew), but hey, ain’t nobody got time for that. I’d rather have Twix Bar Squares. After trying this recipe, you will too.
