Vegetarian, plant-based, vegan, what’s the difference?

Vegetarianism is a diet that doesn’t include any meat or dead animal parts (red meat, white meat, fish, seafood, gelatin, etc.).
A plant-based diet is composed exclusively of plants and excludes all animal products (including dairy products, eggs and honey).
Veganism refers to a lifestyle that excludes all products and services that involve animal exploitation or suffering, such as certain clothing materials (leather, wool), products tested on animals, and zoos.

Why veganism?

For the animals: We love them, whether they have fur or fins. We consider all animals, humans included, as equals and wish them only happiness.
For a healthy climate: The livestock industry emits more greenhouse gases than all transport combined (cars, planes, boats, etc.).
For living oceans: It’s possible that our grandchildren will see oceans without fish in about thirty years’ time.
For nature: 91% of the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest is due to animal agriculture. [ref.] Deforestation is responsible for the extinction of more than a hundred plant and animal species every day.
For humanity: Over 50% of the grain grown worldwide is used to feed livestock, while at the same time, millions of humans go hungry.
For health: The World Health Organization now associates processed meats with a cancer risk and categorized red meat as potentially carcinogenic (it was about time—this had already been known for years). People eating a plant-based diet will tell you that they simply feel better, more alive and lighter when eating only foods of plant origin. Several of the world’s top athletes tout the benefits of a vegan diet. To name only a few, these include Olympic champion Carl Lewis or Ironman Rich Roll, who completed no fewer than five Ironman competitions in the same week. Closer to home, there’s long-distance swimmer Xavier Desharnais, two-time winner of the Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean, and the world champion pair skater Meagan Duhamel.”

Are your products certified as organic?

Yes, they are.

How to keep the products fresh?

Keep our products in the fridge until the “”best before”” date.
The sausages can be frozen for up to 12 months but NOT the cheeses.
Once opened, the products are good for more/less one week in the fridge.

How do we cook your products?

First you have to take off the plastic casing with the tip of a sharp knife. You can eat the products as is because they are pre-cooked but they are WAY better included in your favorite recipe!
The best way to cook the sausages and seitans is either in ground ”meat”, cut in thin slices, in cubes or in strips in a frying pan with a bit of vegetable oil or on the BBQ.
The cheeses you can grate, cut in cubes or in thin slices to put on a burger, pizza, sandwich or pastas. They melt incredibly well!
