Cream is a very popular food in England for dolloping on desserts, sandwiching cakes together, and of course for serving with scones for an afternoon tea. But most dairy cream on sale is not from happy free-range cows, but from the industrial dairy industry.
Nature’s Charm is a lovely little company, founded in Thailand. Although coconuts are not local, this brands that harvesting is from local people (not tethered monkey-slaves dent up trees to retrieve the coconuts). It not only offers a lovely range of coconut whipping creams and evaporated/condensed milks, but has now ventured into oat-based products too. We could do the same here, with transfarmation projects setting up livestock farmers to join the profitable oat market, leaving animals to live out their lives in peace.
We may think of cats lapping bowls of cream. But cats are actually lactose-intolerant and should not be fed milk or cream of any kind.
The company also offers lovely caramel sauces, ideal to top vegan ice-cream. Everything’s sold in zero waste tins or glass jars, so is easy to recycle. Look for them in indie health shops and farm shops.
