I see the folks behind vegan products are up in arms over an EU amendment which would ban certain terms being used on the packaging and marketing of plant-based food and drinks. A number of these companies have launched a petition, calling for a “halt to plant-based censorship”.

They have said that the amendment would “censor all use of dairy-related language, packaging, or imagery for plant-based foods” and that they might not be able to use terms such as “contains no dairy” or “creamy texture”.

I’ve no issue with the amendment, I don’t see why others should piggyback off the back of farming.
