Farmers Call For Ban On Vegan Products Described As Burgers Or Sausages

Farmers do not want vegan products to be allowed to be described as burgers or sausages.

The Irish Farmers Association has written to MEPs urging them to only allow these type words to be connected with meat products.

It says plant-based food is deliberately disguised as something it is not, and it's misleading to consumers.

Other words the IFA does not want to be used are steak, milk, cheese, and butter.

IFA President Tim Cullinan said, “We simply cannot have plant-based products deliberately disguised as something they are not. It’s deliberately misleading to our consumers and undermines our industry”.

“Private companies want to cash in on our reputation and use it to sell their products.  There is a powerful lobby in Europe to reject these amendments, so it’s crucial that our MEPs listen to farmers on the ground and adopt them”.
