I find the Masterfoods decision particularly dissappointing.

I'm sure that as a business decision they've weighed up the costs of using veg vs. non-veg whey and figured that vegetarians/vegan's just don't represent enough of their market.

It doesn't change the fact that I'm unhappy about it though.

Hi kameel,
you have a point, unfortunately business has a lot to do with profits. Nevertheless, there will always be alternatives :)

Just a note to yourself, and all your readers:

http://www.marscampaign.org has been set up to campaign against the move, and inform everyone just exactly whats been happening.

Please have a look, and help spread the word.

The Vegetarian population of britain is between 3-5%
