Do you ever buy the Dairy Free Sunflower Spread from Marks and Spencer? I wrote about the awesome vegan labelling of this product a year ago, but things seem to have changed since then.
It is no longer labelled as vegan. What gives?
My partner Josh reached out to the company via Twitter to see if he could get some answers. This is what he was told:
It is still vegan but they couldn’t fit the word vegan on the tub? The word vegetarian fits, but not vegan?
As Josh pointed out, vegan is a cover-all word that encompasses vegetarianism so it would make sense to use the shorter ‘v’ word.
This is a bit of a blunder. Come on M&S, show some vegan love and common sense.
