Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them:
For those unfamiliar with the weekend long electronic music dance festival, it draws out tens of thousand of people who can pronounce Avicii and don’t mind crowds. Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld, food vendors on-site for hungry music revelers are serving up all sorts of animal products. Though only three vendors have been confirmed on the fests Facebook page, a cursory glance at their menus shows pulled pork tacos and pork souvlaki–a stark contrast to the happy, Veld-flag waving, sunglass wearing Esther The Wonder Pig they feature in the promo flyer (seen above). It’s just so interesting to me that they (like so many other companies) can profit off of the flesh of some animals and simultaneously profit off of the promotion of saving others.
