Agricultural trade and a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom are on the agenda for trade minister David Parker on his visit to Europe this week.
Vegan charity Viva! is urging consumers to ditch dairy as part of a new initiative called ‘MooFree May’ now in its second year. Campaigners hand out vegan cheese and chocolate to consumers.
The campaigners have a giant inflatable cow emblazoned with the words Vegan is a State of Kind. They show undercover video footage taken on dairy farms and distribute dairy-free booklets and guides.
