Veggie chopper: ‘This is a good thing’ for vegans
By Michael M. BreslinAssociated PressThe veggie choppers of the world have arrived in Washington.
The USDA announced on Thursday that it would begin selling them in U.S. grocery stores this fall.
The first batch of six will go on sale in grocery stores in early December.
“I’m excited about this product,” said Julie Schumacher, who runs the Vegan Outreach Network, which is helping distribute the choppers.
“I think it will be a great way to make sure that people know that vegans are welcome in the grocery store.”
Vegan Outreach was founded by a couple of college students in 2014.
The group’s mission is to raise awareness of veganism by showing people the alternatives to meat and dairy.
The first vegan chopper was produced by a company in Oregon.
The second was manufactured in Germany.
The third is now in the United States.
The USDA says the chopper can be used to make vegetarian, vegan and vegan-friendly choices for people who are vegans, vegetarians, vegans-for-all, and who eat vegan meals.
The vegan choppers are sold at several locations across the country.
The company behind the first batch said it had received more than 1,000 orders and expects to ship up to 500 of them to consumers in the next two weeks.
They are sold by specialty retailers such as Whole Foods, Safeway, and Kroger.
Vegan Choppers are being marketed as a way to help people who do not eat meat, dairy, eggs, seafood or meat-containing products.
They’re available in a variety of colors and sizes.
The food will come in a container that fits into the palm of your hand, which makes it easy to hold, and it’s also reusable, said Amy Schumann, founder of Vegan Outlaw, which was created in partnership with a company called VegaLifesaving.org.
The food comes with a label to explain that it’s a vegan product and is made from natural ingredients.
They have a sticker that says “made in the USA,” and it says the ingredients are “all natural and organic.”
“The ingredients are not GMO, not herbicide, not antibiotics, not hormone disruptor,” said Schumann.
“It’s a whole vegan diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, whole fish, eggs,” said Shumacher.
Vegetarian Chopper, which will cost $19.99, is one of a series of products that the USDA has developed for the market.
The agency says it’s trying to be more transparent and non-profit in its marketing.
The agency says its products are available at farmers markets, health food stores and specialty stores and are being sold in grocery and convenience stores.
There is no age restriction, but the USDA says it doesn’t allow people under age 18 to purchase the products.
In an email to The Associated Press, a USDA spokesperson said the USDA is a federal agency and does not endorse or promote products from companies that do not comply with its regulatory requirements.
The chopper will be available for purchase starting next month at participating farmers markets and other food retailers, and the USDA expects it will continue to be available through the end of November.
The consumer rights group Vegans for Animal Rights also has endorsed the chopping technology.
“The USDA is providing the technology for free to retailers and consumers who have a stake in making a sustainable food system and a healthy environment,” said Amy Gaskins, a co-founder of the group.
“We are excited about the possibilities this product will offer for our customers and their families.
We encourage the USDA to make this a viable, affordable alternative to meat consumption and encourage its distributors to continue offering this alternative to consumers.”
The USDA announced it is also offering the choppers at the farmers market.
Vegans For Animal Rights is offering the first $100 to help cover the cost of the choppy and $50 for those who purchase them for themselves.
