On today's show we had a very interesting chat with Andrew Tyler of Animal Aid all about National Vegan Month. In the UK, most of us wouldn’t dream of eating a dog or a cat, but have no qualms about tucking into the flesh (and other parts) of pigs, chickens, cows, sheep, turkeys and fish. That’s the contradiction at the heart of Animal Aid’s new Vegan Month campaign tour, during which they offer a variety of ‘meat’ products from ‘ethically reared’ Labradors, Dachschunds and other pedigree dogs. Of course, the ‘dog meat’ is fake but the point real and serious.

During the discussion we brought up that, although eating out with a member of your party on a vegan diet can prove difficult at a number of restaurants, things are certainly better than they used to be, with Indian and Thai restaurants in particular catering well for those who choose to not eat animal produce. Some pizza chains are also now providing diary free choices on their menu. The same goes for supermarkets having a wider range of suitable products than perhaps 10 years ago.
