My take on the parent company debate (& ethical consumption) in veganism

My take on the parent company debate (& ethical consumption) in veganism

One of the stalwart and rumbling debates of the vegan world is that of parent companies; specifically, the ethical dilemma presented when we buy products that are ‘strictly’ vegan (i.e. do not use or contain any animal products) from companies that otherwise do use animal products.
