"Around 4% of the population of Canada are considered vegetarian and probably a lot less are vegan. If it was viable it would have been done." Only ~10% of EnVie's customers are vegetarian or vegan. If your theory is correct, EnVie would have shut down long ago.
I'm disappointed there was only a tiny percentage of vegan burgers in this city. Then again, most restaurants have nothing to offer vegetarians/vegans except for French fries and lettuce (we take so much pride in our local restaurants and very few chefs can offer a single calorie dense vegan option on their menu??) Then on top of it, I had to listen to people having orgasms and taking selfies with their burgers. I'm happy it's over. I did get the Foggy Goggle burger. It was delicious.
Animal agriculture is one industry that needs so much white wash in order for people to believe that it's good. The local farm, the red barns, the easy-going farmer who "enjoys animals" and the quaint little butcher shop are all just buzz words used to describe a heinous industry. This farm kills animals for profits and not just livestock, exotic animals that have no place being in a barn or in our climate. At our current demand for animal products, there is no way we could source all of it from "sustainable" farms. We need to be moving away from eating animals, not dressing it up.
