Vegan alternatives to dairy products are better for the earth, better for animals, and quite often better for human health as well. But factory farmers, who profit off of animal exploitation and suffering, hate this new reality. That’s why they’ve successfully lobbied the British Department for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), demanding that it try to slow this trend by cracking down on labeling and marketing for vegan dairy products.

Under the latest guidance from DEFRA, the UK government is encouraging non-dairy brands to restyle the word “milk” as “mylk” instead, and to avoid using phrases such as “cheddar-type” and “yoghurt-style.” But if DEFRA wants to focus on “accuracy” and “clarity,” it should follow that line of logic through to its natural conclusion. That’s why PETA UK is urging DEFRA to also require cow-based milk to be labeled as “bovine mammary secretions.”

Please sign this petition to demand that DEFRA stop its plan to target non-dairy alternatives!
