'Feats' (Fake Meats)


A number of British supermarkets are reported to be due to position vegan 'meats' next to their carnivore-focused equivalents (https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/jun/11/sainsburys-to-sell-vegan-fake-meats-next-to-real-thing-in-trial). I assume that both will be securely wrapped (in disposable plastic?) to prevent cross-contamination. Whilst I generally applaud reductions in animal food products (and can see the psychological logic of producing foods that look like their meat equivalents) on environmental grounds, I tend to be with the French who have banned the use of terms such as 'sausage' and 'hamburger' to describe vegan products. I don't see why stuff has to 'pretend' (apparently, some of the new burgers have artificial beetroot 'blood' which will ooze from them after cutting).
