Do you consume oat drink, soy yoghurt, or other dairy alternatives?
EU parliament is attempting to ban any terms, marketing, or even appearance of vegan products that are associated to milk or dairy. This includes the terms "yoghurt" style, similar packaging in cartons or yoghurt cups, or even the comparison with milk's climate impact.

While this dairy-lobby-driven amendment is already through parliament, there's a petition to stop it in council.

@schmittlauch They pulled that stunt here in Missouri and now everything is labelled things like 'malk' or 'non dairy substitute' or my favorite euphamism, 'plant based hydration'. Vendors are sorting ordinary soy milk with energy drinks for that reason!

Don't let them get away with this nonsense.


@Almafeta They already got away with it in a way that products not from lactating animals are not allowed to be named "milk", but e.g oat drink.
What this new regulation would cause is even the ban of "non-dairy" – because that's a link to dairy products – or even "creamy".
