Following Encouragement From PETA, Stroud Fish and Chip Shop Trials New Menu Item

Stroud, Gloucestershire – Tomorrow, in honour of World Vegan Month (November), fish-free fish and chips will be available from an award-winning eatery in Stroud. Simpsons Fish and Chips will be serving up delicious tofu fish wrapped in nori seaweed and coated with Simpsons’ batter. Customers can also tuck into many other vegan treats, including super-“cheesy” vegan patties, pea fritters, and fried pickles. For now, the “tofish” is only available for World Vegan Month, so make sure you don’t miss out on your plaice in the queue.

“From the most upmarket  restaurants to the local chippie, finding delicious vegan foods has never been easier,” says PETA Director of Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “Vegan fish fillets are packed with protein and flavour but have none of the cruelty and cholesterol associated with fish flesh.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that in addition to sparing fish immense pain and distress, vegans are less prone to suffering from cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are and have a lower carbon footprint.
