Cruelty-Free Shopping Made Oh-So-Easy!

Cruelty-Free Shopping Made Oh-So-Easy!

Tags: food, shopping, veg, Adelaide

So whenever you go shopping to stock up on mouth-watering cruelty-free food, do you spend more time than you'd like trying to ignore the icky meat, egg, and dairy-laden products that clutter the supermarket shelves in your quest to find those delightful dairy-free chocolate bars, meat-free mince and eggless mayonnaise? I know I do, especially when I visit a new supermarket that I don't know very well!

Don't you just wish shops would stick big, eye-catching signs up quickly drawing your attention to all the amazing vegetarian and vegan goodies that they sell? Well, one supermarket in Adelaide has done just that! Yep, apparently Foodworks in Glenelg have figured out that more and more people are wanting to fill their shopping trolleys without contributing to animal cruelty and environmental destruction and so they have posted big signs directing shoppers to the amazing cruelty-free food that they stock. Woot!!

Cruelty-free food at Foodworks

Tofutti icecream!

Tofutti cheese, pig-friendly 'bacon', meat-free schnitzels, vegan whipped cream, vegetarian 'prawns', to-die-for dairy-free icecream ... yum!! :-) If you're in Adelaide make sure you check this place out on Jetty Rd, Glenelg. And if not, post a comment below and tell everyone where your favourite veg-friendly shop is!

Just sent them some feedback happy :::
Hey, I'd just like to congratulate you on making your Gleneg shop more veg-friendly. It is amazing to see shops take up the challenge of suporting a more animal-friendly way of life. If only this sort of stuff would happen in Melbourne. Good on ya' for being a true Aussie and supporting the underdog! (the animals and the vegetarian people) It's great to see some people with morals.

Very very happy!!! I'm in a good mood now happyhappyhappy  ecstatic ecstatic ecstatic

That's awesome! I really hope the word will spread and stores all around the country will follow the initiative.
I might speak to the owners of local Supa IGA franchises etc - they might be willing to do something similar happy

I might write to my local supermarket and suggest this to them. That way I won't have to roam the whole store searching for what I want!

This is a great idea. Perhaps Adelaide isn't so bad after all.

This is awesome.

I remember about 2 years ago, my local supermarket didn't even stock tofu, falafel, or even soymilk.

Now theres a whole fridge section full of substitutes, as well as a "health food aisle" which caters for vegetarians, vegans, as well as people with alergies.

OMG ecstatic WOW! ecstatic
I wish every supermarket did this!

Not only would it make it easier to find things myself, but it would highlight for other non-veg consumers that there are plenty of delicious vegie foods out there to choose from! happy

Foodworks - Glenelg - brilliant. We have just returned and unfortunately we couldnt bring the frozen dim sims, the marry-me icecreams or anything on the plane back to Melbourne! Could only look at the shelves and drool!!!
