The Ann Arbor Vegan Meetup Group - Sponsored by VegMichigan Message Board › Chicago Soydairy May be Gone!?
I just received this e-mail from the Chicago Soy Dairy (verbatim), so I wanted to pass it along to all of you.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.
TEMPTATION WILL BE GONE FROM THE MIDWEST IF YOU DON'T HELP US
We are going to lose our shelfspace in the midwest region of
Whole Foods UNLESS:
#1. GO BUY SOME ASAP, because this might be the last time you
can. Pints are going for only $2.37 because it is being
discontinued. Vote for us with your pocketbook.
#2: Call the Midwest Regional Whole Foods Market office at
773.755.1500: Be nice and let them know you love Temptation and
want to buy it all summer long! Vote for us with your Voice!
#3: Find your LOCAL Whole Foods store and tell the manager you
want us on the shelf! (Find your local store here:
#4: TELL SOMEONE ABOUT US. Have them contact Whole Foods. We
are a special vegan company... a)ONLY one made on vegan
equipment. b)ONLY ones using Fair Trade Certified ingredients c)
ONLY ones supporting the local grassroots animal rights
activists d)WAY FREAKING MORE VEGAN THAN OTHER BRANDS!!!
Whole Foods Market has been a great friend in our efforts to
bring a unique 100% vegan ice cream to customers in the
Midwest. Lower sales in the entire category have forced all
brands into a smaller amount of freezer space, and we are going
to suffer. It's not easy to run a company ethically and
entirely vegan. The other products are all made at dairies and
we don't think that's too cool.
If we, somehow, manage to maintain our shelf space, you can
trust we'll have the MOST INSANE SUMMER PARTY YET... WITH
PLENTY OF FREE ICE CREAM! BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW! THIS WEEK!
TODAY! (VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN.. TRUE CHICAGO STYLE)
Otherwise, keep fighting the good fight... but it's not over.
We can get this shelf space back, but it's in your hands.
Please, please... make a call, buy a pint... or we're gone in
the Midwest (Our home).
(Product is still available at independent health food stores
and Whole Foods Market in OTHER regions, and soon WHOLE FOODS
From the bottom of our hearts... Thanks for your help.
