Council stress vegan café proprietor to take away mural over ‘misinformation’ dispute


Bournemouth Vegan Cafe Plant Hustler has been pressured by Trading Standards to remove the cafe’s vegan mural.

The mural describes the health benefits of a vegan diet with compelling statistics and research.

BCP Food Safety’s Plant Hustler’s routine visit resulted in Trading Standards demanding that the mural be covered immediately, claiming the mural was “misleading” and had no “significant” evidence.

Additionally, Plant Hustler’s owner Aaron Bryans has since reached out to his community and online followers asking them to share the news and claim the murals.

Plant Hustler’s mural features inspirational details that promote the health benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.

According to trading standards, this mural was misleading.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Bryans said, “You [Trading Standards] came in so clumsy.

“You really got a little bit OTT. We are not allowed to use the word cheese on the menu and we cannot use the word shrimp because it is all misleading. “

Additionally, TS continued to make mistakes on the mural, stating that words like “cheese” and “shrimp” can mislead people, claiming that plant-based diets lacked in-depth research.

In response to these claims, Bryans added, “It’s a vegan restaurant, I don’t think anyone will go in there to have some chicken.”

Interestingly, the vegan business owner claimed that TS was due to pressure from the meat and dairy industries.

Public response

In response to these events, Bryans went to the cafe’s social media page to seek support for his followers.

The post highlights how the mural enabled people to understand the effects of a plant-based diet and showed evidence for the research.

A follower commented: “We can’t believe this, is it real?”

Another asked, “Have you considered reaching out to any vegan MPs to get on board?”

Many continued to tag vegan celebrities in the mail to get the word out.

Over the years, plant-based nutrition has seen greater investment and research, which has resulted in more people changing their diets.

Also, to keep the movement moving, it is important that we continue to have conversations about the effects of a plant-based lifestyle.
