The Village of Quorn Went Vegan

Posted by on November 2, 2019 | Permalink

PETA and Quorn Foods teamed up to mark World Vegan Month by offering people in the aptly named village of Quorn a free vegan Ultimate Burger, served up at Quorn Village Hall.

Dubbed Quornfest, the event invited people to drop in for a free cooking  demonstration of a huge array of dishes including: 

  • Quorn Ultimate Burger served in buns with vegan cheese, mustard, gherkins, and vegan BBQ mayo
  • Tikka masala with Quorn Vegan Pieces, chickpeas, and spinach
  • Sriracha and mango salad with Quorn Vegan Fillets
  • Beetroot wraps filled with Quorn Vegan Smoky Ham Free Slices, hummus, and spinach
  • Quorn Vegan Cumberland Sausage puff pastry twists
  • Quorn Vegan Nuggets cooked with sweet chilli sauce and garnished with spring onions and fresh coriander

PETA also handed out free vegan starter kits, which show that going vegan is easy, saves animals’ lives, safeguards your health, and protects the environment.  

Why Vegan?

Pigs, chickens, cows, sheep, fish, and other animals on farms have feelings, thoughts, and personalities. Yet the meat, egg, dairy, and fishing industries subject them to miserable conditions, immense suffering, and violent slaughter.

Females are repeatedly forcibly impregnated. Babies are torn away from their mothers, mutilated, and kept in filthy, severely crowded conditions. Then, often when they’re only a few months old, they endure a stressful and terrifying trip to the abattoir, where many are killed while still conscious.  

These animals never get to raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything else that is natural and important to them. Most won’t even breathe fresh air until the day they’re loaded onto lorries headed to the abattoir. 

The best way to help these animals is by refusing to support their exploitation and going vegan – and what better time than World Vegan Month?
