Poor snowflakes

Written by  The Hound

This old mutt understands the country’s trendy, woke, vegan community (all four of them) is taking time out from being outraged at everything Donald Trump has ever done, to concern themselves about an oat milk shortage in NZ.

Apparently, anaemic trendy café goers around the country are getting in a tizz as their local vegan-friendly baristas run dry on their favourite plant-based milk.

Now the poor wee darlings are demanding New Zealand invest in its own plant-based milk factory, possibly converting a cow milk plant.

According to one of these delicate petals, “the country risks falling out of line with global trends if it doesn’t get on board with plant-based milk.

New Zealand has lots of massive dairy factories; we need to transition that infrastructure to dairy free”.

Or, as the Hound suggests, they just take advantage of the NZ dairy sector’s excellent ability to turn fresh grass into natural, tasty and healthy milk!
