Vegan Cheese Company Daiya Isn’t So “Vegan” Anymore

Published

on

To many people who become “vegan,” it’s not so much a diet as it is a lifestyle. This means not only eating cruelty-free foods, but reflecting that philosophy in your everyday choices and actions as well.

Here at CE, we encourage people to vote with their dollar. If you dislike the actions of a company, one of the best ways to “fight” said company is to simply not support them. After all, without demand, there would be no need to supply consumers.

For those of us who avoid or don’t consume dairy, the vegan food company Daiya provides numerous dairy-free cheese alternatives, and is well-known throughout the vegan community given their wide range of products free from dairy, gluten, and soy.

However, Daiya was recently acquired by the international Big Pharma company Otsuka for CA $405 million. This speaks a lot about Daiya as a company, whose core values claim to include both health and animal welfare. Not only is Otsuka a pharmaceutical giant that creates numerous drugs with dangerous side effects, but they also test on animals.

To me, if a company tests on animals, they are not vegan. 

Details of Otsuka’s Acquisition of Daiya Foods

According to the statement issued on the acquisition, acquiring Daiya “expands Otsuka’s product portfolio, adding a new category of plant-based products in North America, and provides Daiya with a like-minded partner with expertise in consumer brands, R&D and manufacturing, and global markets.”

There’s no question that it was a smart business move for Otsuka. Daiya has been thriving as a company and the popularity of plant-based diets has risen consistently over the past decade. Adopting them will likely be a necessary shift in the future to not only save our environment and our health but also to satisfy increasing global food demand.

Terry Tierney, Daiya’s CEO, considers the acquisition to be an “honour.”

“With aligned values and vision, Daiya and Otsuka have a tremendous opportunity to bring the incredible benefits of a plant-forward lifestyle to people around the world,” Tierney said.

“Our partnership with Otsuka enables us to leverage their expertise and vast resources to continue growing our line of great-tasting, allergy-friendly food products that have delighted consumers for more than 10 years.”

His wording seems strange, given that their values are far from being aligned. Many vegans choose to eat plant-based because they’re interested in improving their overall health, which doesn’t align with the values of most pharmaceutical companies. It’s no secret that Big Pharma often creates pills with adverse side effects because they profit off of sick people. This is not an industry most health advocates support wholeheartedly.

Additionally, Otsuka tests on animals, which means they are directly contributing to animal cruelty.

Animal testing is unnecessary, yet countless companies continue to use it because it’s still considered a “norm” within many industries, including Big Pharma. As a result, you have animals being brutally tortured by way of drug addiction, skin burns, crushed spinal cords, tumour growth, forced blindness or deafness, seizures, poison, and far more.

As a result, people all over the world are boycotting Daiya to show the company that their recent acquisition is not something they will support. There’s even a change.org petition titled “Keep Daiya Vegan,” which you can sign here. People are claiming that Daiya has “sold out” and that their values don’t reflect those that are so strongly held by much of the vegan community.

It’s not just the public, even vegan businesses that use Daiya products in their kitchens are boycotting them. The Toronto-based vegan pizzeria, Apiecalypse Now, goes through a whopping 20 cases of Daiya cheese per week, an amount that no other supplier can satisfy. In response to the recent acquisition, Apiecalypse Now will be donating all proceeds from the sale of Daiya in their restaurant to a local animal sanctuary because they do not feel comfortable profiting in any way from animal testing.

This specific pizzeria is the largest single purchaser in Canada of Daiya products outside of grocery stores. Although this is only an interim solution during Daiya’s transition period, they are encouraging the public to sign the petition to stop this acquisition. This is a real problem for vegan businesses.

To me, Daiya’s actions suggest to the public that “if you don’t sell out, you can’t become a successful global business,” which is simply untrue. Remaining in alignment with your values is precisely the definition of success we should all be pushing. No amount of money can justify a poor moral decision.

Final Thoughts

This acquisition is an important lesson on being the change. If you want the world to be a brighter place, full of healthier people and less violence, then we need to set that example for others.

To me, Daiya sold out to a Big Pharma company. However, there are many other vegan companies that are still thriving, without compromising their beliefs. It’s entirely possible to achieve success without abandoning your morals, and to me, you cannot be successful if you’re making unethical decisions and going against your core values.

This could also be seen as a push for many vegans to consume less vegan junk food. At the end of the day, Daiya products aren’t necessarily good for your body, as they’re extremely high in fat and full of processed ingredients. Though they’re certainly better for your health than many animal products, they’re still not “healthy” per se.

So, instead of supporting Daiya, perhaps try some nut cheeses or other healthier vegan alternatives instead!

The Flying Humanoid Phenomena Of Mexico

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There have been multiple reports over the years of bizzare activity in the skies of Mexico. People have claimed to be seeing flying humanoids in the sky. Though not fully verified as to what onlookers have seen, it is clear what they believe.

  • Reflect On:

    Experiences & stories such as this bring us to the question most of us have heard before, 'Are we alone?' What is the true nature of our reality? More importantly, what could this mean for us as a collective, as humanity?

Throughout time in mainstream media and the entertainment industry we have been programmed to see beings outside of human as dangerous, and for the most part there is a good chunk of fear-based propaganda to remind us of the potential danger if we were to encounter a visit.

Though new films and shows have been coming forth with a different perspective & narrative and new space forces are being declared, it is interesting to question the why. Stories of otherworldly visitors have been spread for centuries, and it is time we closely examine them with an open mind.

In this specific instance, an officer driving his patrol car in Mexico has seen a dark shape that he verified was, in fact, a “flying humanoid entity” which he described looked like a floating old woman, dressed in all black with dark skin and eyes that were “just black sockets, without eyelids.”

This startling apparition then apparently flew over to hover right in front of the vehicle and the stunned occupant within. He could see it better at this time, and noted that it was a hideous old woman that “resembled a witch.” Apparently annoyed by the car’s high beams, the witch then reportedly covered her face with some sort of cloak and then flew right into the vehicle’s windshield, causing the dumbfounded officer to go speeding back in reverse. He would explain the terrifying events like this:

As soon as I realized it was a kind of woman being, or a witch, very strange standing there trying to cover her face, she threw herself against my car very fast, falling on the car and hitting the windshield. She was flying very fast and it took only a second to hit the windshield glass. I was so shocked by this action that I put the car in reverse and pushed the accelerator trying to get away while requesting backup assistance by radio.

It was a woman with big black eyes, everything was black, no eyelids. Her skin was dark brown and her expression was horrible. She was furiously trying to get me with her claws while I was running away in reverse calling desperately for backup assistance to any units around.

There Is More Than One Type Of Intelligence

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The current model of schooling puts emphasis on one particular type of education, which only covers a small percentage of the population of children. It also educates children in batches, assuming they are all ready for the same thing.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it time to reevaluate this method of schooling to be more inclusive to children with all types of other intellect and creative ability? Is our education system even bringing out the full potential in our children?

What was your experience in school like? Did you hate it or love it? Were you an all ‘A’ student and found it to be a breeze or did you struggle with understanding some of the subjects you were being taught?

The fact of the matter is, our modern education system is not catering to students as individuals, but lumping them all into the same category and expecting them to succeed, even at things they are not particularly good at or even interested in, while those who got the highest test scores were praised and reminded of their perceived superiority and intelligence.

Because of this, many children experience anxiety around tests because they have been taught over and over again that their value is determined by a letter grade and not their creative abilities. If one child has an amazing skill to write poetry, but then fails a math exam, the latter will be the topic that is looked at and how this failure can be turned around. Often telling the child they need to pay attention more in class or study longer, even though this particular topic may not be where the child’s intelligence lies. This system is designed strictly for children to learn how to memorize and regurgitate what they have learned in the form of tests, not giving much leeway for other talents and abilities.

Our modern-day schooling system was designed to train children into becoming the perfect employee, to sit at a desk perhaps, or follow orders effectively for when they are old enough to enter the workforce. The hours, little time for play, taking instructions from a person with authority and unfortunately, leaving little room for exploring creative abilities. This system, in reality, only caters to a small percentage of people in the world, and because of this, we are effectively killing the creative potential that exists within all human beings.

The following video from Sustainable Human sums this up quite nicely.

As it says in the video, “How did we get to the point where we decided the best way to school our children is to sit them behind a desk and insist they keep still?”

Children are meant to play, to explore, to observe, to stumble, to be curious, to ask questions, to find answers, to learn from others and as they go. Sitting them in a desk seems far from natural, yet this is something that to this day we still accept as normal and see it as, ‘just the way it is.’ However, it hasn’t actually been that long that this has been our generally accepted method of schooling.

“If a kid is failing, it is not the kids fault, the fault is within the system.”

Let us not forget that there are MANY forms of intelligence and it’s time we embraced every single one. The schooling system as we know it, needs an overhaul.

Let’s get this discussion started over in the Collective Evolution Group on Facebook.

Consciousness

Why Humanity Is So Obsessed With Finding Aliens Right Now

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Behind closed doors, quietly, billions are researching and trying to learn about the reality of aliens. It is one of the biggest topics being explored by humanity right now and there is a deep reason for this.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we so enthralled by the reality of ET life? What would happen to our consciousness if we learned they were real and that there were millions of races? How would daily life change?

The biggest secret behind why ET and UFO disclosure has been suppressed is something that isn’t discussed all that much. We typically hear about things like technology suppression, specifically energy systems. How do these crafts get here? What propulsion systems do they use? These questions lead people towards the reality that the technologies of UFO craft ultimately would disrupt our fossil fuel energy oligarchy so much that it would also collapse our economies in some ways.

Of course, this would not be such a bad thing. Why? Because when you consider that this would mean having endless and ‘free’ energy, cost for goods would drop dramatically. Not just that but, when you begin to examine the ease in creating systems based around abundance, it becomes incredible to consider what is truly possible.

An endless supply of food grown locally, everywhere! Endless energy, installed everywhere! Cars and building facilities that do not create pollution. We could essentially live in a society built such that we do not need to be enslaved by money or debt because abundance would simply become a natural happening of a society built with abundant technology, that’s harmonious, in place.

We can all see the value of such disclosures, and the reason why this would be covered but. But there is something even deeper.

The Biggest Secret

The question is, if we know these technologies exist, and they are being suppressed. And if we know that whistleblowers and people have already reverse engineered or built these things, and not all have been killed or threatened, what is the reason why these things are held back? Why do we still deny these realities en masse?

The truth is, it comes down to consciousness. We’ve been saying this since the inception of CE in 2009: solutions are there, but they won’t come until humanity is ready. What does this ACTUALLY mean to be ready? It means growing up enough as a race, that we can actually be responsible for what it is we will have access to. Not just that, but to be able to say we have ‘graduated’ in a sense, to say we are beyond our old ways.

While that sounds like a loaded few sentences, and they are in a sense, all that is really being said here is, humanity has been stuck in a cycle of experience where we continually see everything, and everyone as separate from us. We are individuals, living out our identities and lives and we are simply here to survive. We believe the limiting ideas of what our reality is and should be and thus we create that reality consciously. Our collective belief about how our world should be is directly tied to what actually happens.

But there is this feeling deep within us at this time, and I know you feel it, where we are beginning to deeply question our ways. How we treat one another, our political systems, the elite manipulation and control that exists, the existential reality of who we are and how we are truly just consciousness, all connected. These deep questions are asking us to explore who we truly are and why we are truly here. And many of us are doing so. This is beginning to create instability and change in our system because the consciousness that holds up our old world, is beginning to crack, and a new one is emerging.

It’s On Us

As our consciousness continues to shift, through us truly doing our own questioning, changing our own patterns, habits, thoughts, and actions, we will begin to truly create the solutions necessary to create a world where we can thrive. And disclosure of technologies will come forth. It comes down to US having to do this work, not governments, not someone else coming to save us. It’s about creating an entire populace with the mentality of truly being empowered and self-responsible, as opposed to needed governance and feeling helpless.

This is why the greatest reason why ET reality is so suppressed comes down to consciousness because with an introduction to ET life, comes an entire myriad of experience we have not been exposed to.

In the video below I explain what this means deeply, and how we can begin opening up the doors to mass contact with ET’s.
