Austin, Minnesota. – PETA may sell Vegans Against Spam T-shirts, but that doesn’t stop the group from giving the Hats Off award to Hormel as a local company infamous for killing millions of pigs every year – supplying pizzerias across the country with delicious vegan pepperoni from their brand Happy Little Plants.
“Hormel’s salty pepperoni saving pigs and saving the planet is a sign of things to come,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA advises Hormel to dive deep into the vegan market instead of diving in, and this is the best thing she could do as sales of meat and dairy products are falling.”
Since no one needs to eat meat or dairy products, raising and killing animals for food is unjustified, extremely cruel to animals and destructive to the environment – and people wake up. More than half of Americans now buy vegan meals instead of meat and dairy products.and by 2026 the vegan meat market is projected to be over $ 4.15 billion.
In addition to the rise of a vegan diet, Hormel has sparked public outrage after a covert PETA investigation into one of his suppliers revealed pigs were poked in the eyes with clothespins, beaten with metal bars and planks, and insulted in other gruesome ways. both workers and managers. The company is also being scrutinized for participating in brutal and deadly pig testing in bids to increase its profits, and PETA is urging Hormel to end the controversy by ending meat production and experimentation and becoming a fully vegan company.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “the animals are not ours to eat” – opposes arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information on collecting news and reporting on PETA investigations, please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
