I'm in NW Ontario, Sioux Lookout! One very small very boring and very anti-vegetarian/vegan . We only have 1 grocerie store and there is only 1 tiny space for vegetarian product in all the store , hiding way in the back and i think i'm the only one buying anything vegetarian there lol! I work there and i never see anyone else buying any Tofu, meat substitute, or soy products. That's really sad... I think they won't carry my stuff much longer if it doesn't sell better....
The nearest other town is Dryden, it's 1 hour drive from here. I called Safeway there today to find out if they had soemthing call VEAT (i was told by someone online that this is the best chick'n breast ever) So i asked the lady on the phone if they had a soy based meat substitute name Veat. She asked :" What is it? Is it beef ,pork or chicken?" I told her :" no it's not real meat it's meat substitute. It would probably be located near your tofu section " She says:" Tofu? Is that a vegetable? " I told her :" Well i think it's near you vegetable section " She then transfered me to the produces departement. They had no clue what meat substitute was either lol! They finally told me that they had some Yves ground round and some Bocca burger .
Does anyone know if Veat is available in Ontario ?
Being vegetarian is really hard around here. Everyone is soo big on hunting and fishing and being cruel to animal. This community is soooo far behind when it come to animal right and to vegetarian and vegan stuff it's unreal!
