2:24 pm
five percent from twenty sixteen so this certainly a boost to they have even she says taken off him oddly which of course means of cow milk is dropping so dairy produces traditional dairy produces a can meat industry feeling the pinch and there is a business opportunity you know about mcdonald's has just been rolling out a vegan burgers also here in germany i haven't tried it yet i will though and again the supermarkets are expanding their put folio investors i mean we had just fantastic i.p.o. well they must see money they smell money then see business opportunity as they would've gone for the share and you're actually if you can yourself we know. make a dollar. of this i mean do you like it is this something that you find appetising and you know why did you make the decision to begin with well i mean there are so many possibilities i mean for a lot of people it's oh of course it's ethical reasons you know i personally don't like the idea of having to kill an animal to eat it and i live in a time and age where i can afford the luxury not having to do it this the health
