The Mango Tree, a vegan restaurant in the English town of Taunton, about 150 miles southwest of London is closing temporarily for some renovations. The menu is one of the things that will be renovated, leaving their vegan customers extremely unhappy, according to a story from the Daily Mail.
The Mango Tree is now going to begin selling meat and let's just say their customers are not happy about this development.
As the Daily Mail noted, “those who loved the plant-based values have hit out saying ‘selling meat is worse than closing.'”
The restaurant explained that if it wants to remain open it has no other choice.
In a Facebook post, the Mango Tree said it will feature some "exciting new menu options" they did not come out and say they will no longer be vegan.
The part where the restaurant says they “will be serving a variety of dishes to accommodate a wide variety of dietary needs and preferences" is all too telling.
This triggered some of their vegan customers.
“I’m very saddened to hear this as someone who put so much energy into your restaurant I understand entirely why you are doing this but from a vegan standpoint I would see this as unethical practice,” an angry customer wrote.
“The non vegans will probably be happy to see this but sadly I think you may have lost my business from now as I cannot support this decision wishing you the best," another wrote.
“Despite lots of marketing, many special offers, offering dine in and takeaway, introducing the use of home delivery partners, and working incredibly hard to be as efficient as possible, not enough of the local population used us regularly enough to make continuing in the current format sustainable,” the restaurant responded.
“Veganism isn’t a business venture. It’s an ethical philosophy that does the best for the animals, the planet, and public health,” another angry vegan fired back.
Continuing on as a strictly vegan restaurant was simply not an option for The Mango Tree. When you are unable to generate enough revenue to pay the bills you are left with no choice but to adapt.
