1 Woke Agenda Item Just Collapsed

The far-left “green” agenda isn’t just after your car or gas stove. Radical progressives are demanding whole-life changes to “save” the planet. In reality, they are simply trying to use the climate to impose more and more socialist policies onto American families.

The biggest offenders, in their minds, are meat eaters. Carnivore Americans are “destroying” the earth. Even a UN summit from last year demanded the U.S. to stop consuming red meat.

Liberal companies have pushed “meat alternatives” to win us over. These products, made from heavily processed plants, are supposed to taste like real meat. Everyone from grocery stores to restaurants is pushing this stuff. But it looks like Americans are just not interested.

From The Post Millennial:
A new report released by the Good Food Institute (GFI) has found that sales of plant-based alternatives to real meat, seafood, eggs, and dairy in the United States declined in 2023…

According to GFI, unit sales were down 9 percent in 2023 while dollar sales fell by 2 percent…

While plant-based creamers, protein powders, liquids, baked goods, desserts, and milk saw slight increases in sales, the consumption of faux-meat and seafood went down for the second year in a row.

Sales of plant-based “meat” have declined in two years in a row. It appears regular buyers continue to purchase and eat the stuff. But most Americans stop buying fake meat after the first try.

This is a big blow to the left’s “green” agenda. Liberals trying to impose their “earth-saving” policies onto Americans demand we cut back on staples like beef or eggs. They claim this will save the planet, although the data is hotly debated. What is obvious is that many people pushing this stuff are vegans who believe eating meat is “cruel.”

But, if they can’t get Americans to buy fake meat, it means we will continue to buy the good stuff like beef, eggs, and seafood.  The irony is that, during an era where health experts urge Americans to eat whole, organic foods, leftists are championing food that is more processed than anything seen at McDonald’s.

But Americans are not ditching fake meat over health concerns, but because it tastes bad. So, until hippies can figure out a way to make pea protein taste like steak, they are still out of luck.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sales of plant-based meat alternatives have declined in the U.S. over the last two years.
  • This is a setback for environmentalists and vegans, who claim meat production is destroying the earth.
  • Customers are rejecting the products because of “taste, texture, and price.”
