[9 December/Plant Based News]

A Canadian vegan meat startup is set to open its first plant-based butcher shop in Canada just before Christmas. Real Fake Meats, whose store called Plant-Based Butcher, will open in Halifax, Nova Scotia, will include vegan turkey, bacon, chicken, pepperoni, and cheese. Holiday Boxes are available to order online now and options include the ‘Basic Holiday Box’ featuring a veggie roast with roasted leek gravy, a pair of gluten-free boxes (CAD 80) featuring dishes like mock turkey cutlets and cranberry cashew mocha cheese cake, and the ‘Plant Lovas Charcuterie Tray’ . According to the owners sometimes eating a plant-based diet requires more work and planning in the kitchen.
