On World Vegan Day this past Nov. 1, the UK's first permanent vegan butcher shop opened in London and completely sold out. Inundated with 100 online orders within their first 10 minutes, the shop also attracted long lines down the street, reported Plant Based News.

 

According to Live Kindly, while set up much like a traditional butcher shop with white tile walls and meat cases, Rudy's Vegan Butcher offers patrons completely meat- and dairy-free selections, including plant-based pastrami, seitan chicken, 'soysage' patties and Christmas turkey rolls. The substitutes are made from soya and wheat protein seitan that mimic the experience of meat, Business Insider reported.

"It's all designed to emulate meat. It tastes like meat, it's got meat-like texture," said veteran vegan chef and Rudy's co-founder Matthew J. Foster, reported Fox News.

Spurred on by the animal cruelty he witnessed as a professional chef, Foster and his business and life partner Ruth (Rudy) Mumma opened the non-traditional butcher shop as an extension of their popular restaurant, Rudy's Dirty Vegan Diner. The latter launched in April 2018 as London's first vegan diner, Camden New Journal reported.

 

"It didn't seem right anymore," Foster told the news report. "We can survive and thrive far better on a plant-based diet."

The restaurant is Foster's and Mumma's outlet for promoting and educating others about animal rights using "unbeatable, mouth-watering food and a punk AF attitude towards getting sh!t done," their website says.

The diner reimagines popular American comfort and fast food entirely out of plants. Now, the butcher shop expands their vision and offerings, as do DIY home kits for favorite Rudy's meals. For every DIY kit purchased, Rudy's donates £1 (about a dollar) to Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary.

The meat-free butcher shop will also stock ready-made foods like chili non-carne, vegan 'lobstah' salad and dairy-free cheese sauces, Live Kindly reported.

In addition to being cruelty-free for animals, a vegan diet has also been touted as one of the most effective ways individuals can reduce their carbon footprint. Global meat production, especially beef and lamb, requires a high amount of carbon emissions and strains natural resources, something meatless alternatives can largely avoid, the New York Times reported.

"We're destroying the planet for our taste buds," warned Foster, reported Camden New Journal

  • I hope this has a domino effect globally, we can go without the energies of the mutilated meat..you eat the fearbased symptoms of the dying animal..plus all the crap that they endure as fodder, we can have a healthier diet of plant based foods...less illnesses for humans....our star people dont and won't eat any animal..its breaking their laws..Mc Donald's fries are laced with petroleum and formaldehyde....be aware of what you're eating!
  • The name ...word Butcher should be replaced with a more vegan friendly name ...like Vegan Cutlets ..Vegan Protein...Vegan Alternatives...or suggest names
