From Iceland — Makers Of Meatless Meatpies Honoured For Environmentalism

Makers Of Meatless Meatpies Honoured For Environmentalism

Published April 9, 2013

Gæðakokkar, the company that made headlines in February when testing carried out by the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST) found that their beef pies contained not a trace of animal protein, are now being honoured by a Finish organisation.
Dodo, a Finnish “environmental organisation for urban folk which relies on the power of knowledge and argument,” has chosen to highlight Gæðakokkar unintentional efforts at environmental protection, RÚV reports. Dodo has said that Gæðakokkar’s meatless revelation has both diminished the environmental impact of the beef industry, while effectively demonstrating that it is possible to make tasty meatless dishes that taste the same as the meat-filled alternatives.
It can’t all be rainbows and lollypops, however. Gæðakokkar is still being sued for mislabeling its products.
