The regulation of food industries has always been necessary. In the western world, successive governments have successfully played the anti-business card by implementing regulations so that consumers and the public at large feel someone is looking out for them. But at times, governments are known to flirt with populist measures in their attempt to gain […] Read more
Plant-based nutrition is alive and well in Canada, according to a recent poll. The poll from Angus Reid Global, in partnership with Dalhousie University, found that by April 2019, 38 per cent of Canadians had tried a plant-based protein food item in recent months. The Beyond Meat phenomenon certainly has something to do with it. […] Read more
