Thanks all for your advice. Phil's comment got me thinking that the same argument can be made when considering an ethical investing. You invest in the "best of class". In this case this is a meat producer that has a vegetarian alternative. It's better than a meat producer without a vegetarian alternative. I only want to find out now if the product is processed on different machines, as some of you suggested. Thanks again.

I think supporting the vegetarian product you like is more important than not supporting the non-vegetarian company. There are plenty of supermarkets that sell both meat and veggie items. This doesn't seem much different.

Timothy,
Seems to me that you are encouraging them to make meatless products. Helping them transition off their meat dependency.

My only concern is if the same machines are used to process the vegetarian and nonvegetarian products. I suspect not, but is there a way to know?

I've discovered this great product called "Oh Naturel" by Schneiders. They are meatless, vegetarian hotdogs. They're great tasting, the texture is great and better yet they don't have the chemically smell and taste of similar products. One problem - it's manufactured by a meat packing company that's huge. So I'm in a moral quandary - the product is vegetarian, no harm to animals. But, the company makes 99% of its revenue off of meat processing. By purchasing the product perhaps I'm encouraging them to make more meatless products. But on the other hand... I'd like to hear what others think.

46 million turkeys killed in US for today's celebrations alone. Happy thanksgiving. Not so happy for the turkeys.

51% of all global warming gases are due to meat factories. There is in other words no possibility to stop global warming if meat consumption, dairy consumption, egg consumption and farm fish consumption is reduced greatly or eliminated. Even if all fossile fuel use would stop before 2050, which is very unlikely, there would still be a 50 increase in emissions due to the animal industries.

Yep, I agree with Sacha and Daniel. Omnivore and ovo lacto veg are not synonymous.. Omni's eat dead creatures; ovo- lacto, vegetarian and vegan mean no animal died to provide sustenance.
Comment by sacha on October 30, 2009 at 1:37pm
Sorry Adriana,

An ovo-lacto vegetarian is not an omnivore.
