Rude Health are adding fresh milk alternatives to their range of organic nut and oat drinks. The chiller section of Waitrose and independent stores will now be stocking 750ml sized cartons of Coconut, Almond and Oat drinks by the company. The organic drinks are also gluten free and no more than four ingredients are used in each of their recipes. Camilla Barnard, a representative for Rude Health, said: “We’ve been working towards the launch of our Fresh Drinks for some time, following a growing demand for quality dairy-alternatives in the fridge as well as in the ambient aisles, where we’ve been sitting (very) comfortably since we launched our bestselling Almond Drink back in 2014.”


On August 22nd 2017 the first plant based milk day was celebrated. The day was organised by ProVeg UK, Plant Based News, Animal Aid, Veganuary and Viva! and widely promoted among vegans around the world. Jimmy Pierson, Director of ProVeg UK, said: “The first ever World Plant Milk Day ushers in the start of a new post-milk era in which everyone makes healthier, more compassionate food choices. Whether it’s oat, almond, soya or coconut, there are plant milks for every taste, for every cup of tea and every bowl of cereal. World Plant Milk Day aims to widen their availability and further accelerate their popularity.”

About Vegan Life

Every morning I sit down at my desk with an almond milk Earl Grey (in my red starry mug) and read emails, press releases and the latest news. It continues to amaze me that so much of what I read in the mainstream media is relevant to veganism. Negative articles about vegans and veganism seem to be diminishing to be replaced with pieces highlighting the benefits to the environment, animal welfare and our health. The number of businesses embracing compassion and removing animal products from their products, as well as making sure they are cruelty-free, is astounding. With this in mind, we have brought you a business feature which I am really excited about. We have spoken to Stephanie Redcross who founded a vegan marketing, consulting and coaching company to advise entrepreneurs and professionals about how to run their businesses without compromising their core values. There has been an explosion of small vegan enterprises over the last few years and there are still so many gaps in the market — if you have an idea for a vegan product or service which you want to make a reality, this feature is perfect for you. We have also noticed that the number of people taking part in animal tourism has increased recently. You may have seen pictures of people visiting swimming pigs in the Bahamas and with the clear sparkling water and cloudless blue skies you would be forgiven for thinking that this looked like paradise. Unfortunately, these pigs do not live the life of luxury that you may expect and it is so sad, though not surprising, that in 2017 tourism still exploits animals for commercial gain. Finally, we have some incredible recipes for you in this issue including a personal favourite, scones with cream and jam, and a whole host of fun Halloween recipes which you can make with your kids or, if you’re a big kid like me, for yourself! Have a happy Halloween and make sure you stock up on some vegan sweets for those trick or treaters!
