New Restaurant ‘Veganism’ Serves Only ‘About 10%’ Vegan Options

A new restaurant in Melbourne, reportedly using the name Veganism, has come under fire for not actually being vegan.

A post made to Facebook this weekend shows a sign outside of the restaurant which reads ‘Veganism’, and warns consumers that the Victoria Street establishment is not actually vegan.

Unclear marketing

The Facebook post also sparked confusion over the name of the restaurant.

While it is identified on Facebook and its own website as Shizuku, marketing – including the company’s Facebook cover photo and the sign outside the restaurant – suggests its name is Veganism.

One commenter wrote: “Why is their sign Veganism and their fb name Shizuku? Im confused [sic].”

‘Cash in’

The person who posted the original image said it was a matter ‘confused omnivores trying to cash in’ on the vegan movement.

Another user wrote that ‘there may be legal routes for false advertising’.

It should be noted that the restaurant – while not actually vegan – does serve at least ten options which are labeled vegan on its menu.
