In Australia, some manufacturers who target the vegetarian market will label their foods with the statement “suitable for vegetarians”; however, for foods intended for export to the UK, this labelling can be inconsistent because flavorings in ingredients lists do not need to specify if they come from animal origin. As such, natural flavor could be derived from either plant or animal sources.
Animal rights organizations such as Animal Liberation promote vegan and vegetarian diets. “Vegetarian Week” runs from 1–7 October every year, and food companies are taking advantage of the growing number of vegetarians by producing meat-free alternatives of popular dishes, including sausages and mash and Spaghetti Bolognese.According to a 2010 News poll Survey, 5% of Australians identify themselves as vegetarians wi th 2% actually eating a diet defined by the survey as vegetarian.Now, let’s take a moment to look at Australian celebrities who are vegetarians which are as follows: –
