Do you consume oat drink, soy yoghurt, or other #vegan dairy alternatives?
EU parliament is attempting to ban any terms, marketing, or even appearance of vegan products that are associated to milk or dairy. This includes the terms "yoghurt" style, similar packaging in cartons or yoghurt cups, or even the comparison with milk's climate impact.

While this dairy-lobby-driven amendment is already through parliament, there's a petition to stop it in council. stopam171.com/

Some background on this: theconversation.com/vegan-dair

Terms like "soy milk" or "almond yoghurt" are already banned, this regulation attempts to erase the thought from consumer's mind that anything else than dairy products can be used for similar purpose.

Consumers are not so dumb to mix up products clearly labelled as vegan plant-based stuff. Given the climate and animal welfare impact of dairy farming, this vile attempt shows dairy producers are not willing to give their customers free choice.

@schmittlauch This is infuriating to me because I can’t have actual milk. It’s not that I choose oat milk because I’m deceived into it.

@Gargron @schmittlauch "Customer deception" is the dumbest argument. Even if this amendment passes, I can't believe that it will hold on a court of law.
