This is sort of funny.
The French bacon company La Vie, typically uses a whimsical largely irreverent approach to marketing. But this time I think they are the straight man and letting the French government and the French Pork Lobby make fools of themselves.

Basically the French Pork Industry is claiming unfair competition because La Vie's bacon is too much like bacon.

I’ve been on hiatus from this forum for a while. Apologies if this has been mentioned already.


Anyone surprised at the outrage? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
People are upset because they ADDED an item? 🤔 :laughing:

I can easily imagine a plant based bacon being quite similar to pork, but I wouldn't want it!
I loved Morningstar bacon--that chewy cardboardy tasty striped stuff, and I love Baco's!
