Why we are plant-based
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." ~ Albert Einstein
Our marinated macadamia and almond nutcheeses contain no animal products. Our fruit range is sweetened with a dash of organic North Island honey.
We don't need meat or dairy products to be healthy. We don't need to cause cruelty, or use up vast tracts of farmland, to be healthy.
"If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn't we?" ~ Pam Ahern, Edgar's Mission.
A vegan or vegetarian diet is more sustainable and less demanding on the environment and our planet.
"Clean protein is protein that is largely absent of saturated fat. It doesn't have cholesterol. It doesn't have pathogens, like E. coli, salmonella. It doesn't have antibiotics. It doesn't have drug residues."
~ Kathy Freston, on Eat for the Planet.
"Compassion is the radicalism of our time."
~ Dalai Lama
