New Campaign Urges Kraft to Finally Make BOCA Foods 100% Vegan

New Campaign Urges Kraft to Finally Make BOCA Foods 100% Vegan

Animal rights organisation Compassion Over Killing (COK) has launched a new campaign asking BOCA to lose the cow’s milk from their products and become an all-vegan brand.

BOCA, a subsidiary of Kraft Heinz, is among the largest sellers of meatless products throughout America. However, the majority of their range of vegetarian burger patties and meat replacement options still contain cow’s milk – making the products unsuitable for vegans.

Although BOCA acknowledges the demand for dairy-free products, they have yet to take action to move to a fully vegan line. With so many other vegan ranges available from companies such as Gardein, Field Roast and Beyond Meat, BOCA need to step up and join the overwhelming masses of consumers and companies who are enjoying lactose-free, cruelty-free food.

This isn’t the first time COK have called for BOCA to ditch the animal products. A collaborative campaign in 2009, in which hordes of consumers spoke out along with COK, Mercy for Animals and the Animal Protection & Rescue League, prompted BOCA to remove all eggs from their products, a task which was completed in 2010.

“Tens of thousands of consumers joined Compassion Over Killing in 2009 to ask BOCA to offer more vegan products. This successfully prompted the company to stop using eggs, but over 70% of BOCA’s product line still contains cruelly-produced cow’s milk,” said Laura Cascada, Compassion Over Killing’s corporate campaigns manager. “Parent company Kraft Heinz now has an opportunity to build a better BOCA brand by ditching dairy and going 100% plant-based.”

The dairy farming industry is far crueler than most people realize, with cows being forced to produce excessive and unnatural amounts of milk – often injected with growth hormones to boost milk production. Calves are repeatedly taken from their mothers when they are far too young so humans can essentially steal the milk meant for cows’ own babies. COK investigations have exposed multiple examples of this inhumane industry.

Please click here to sign COK’s petition to BOCA and let them know that although vegetarian products are a step in the right direction, we’d like them to commit to being completely cruelty-free.

Note: Please keep comments peaceful and family friendly.

    Yes! They should have done this long ago. Boca should be gluten free as well to complete the transition to “healthy”!!

    Soy is not a health food…can block thyroid and people are estrogen dominant due to meat/dairy/soy/BPA/chemical/fat/The Pill and then they are gender confused.

    By using all the acronyms our language is no longer English, and I can’t read it and will henceforth ignore any post with initials instead of names.

    The name is used several times in regards to COK-Compassion Over Killing. So it’s quicker to read with the acronym once it’s stated once or twice. BOCA is the name of the burger. In the age of tweeting and people having shorter attention spans-you are truly limiting your reading material and might miss something important that you need to know!!!

    I can’t buy your products until they are 100% vegan – hopefully soon.

    Not sure why you would put milk into these burgers anyway-how many recipes using animal flesh also have milk in them? Maybe eggs, but not milk. GO ALL THE WAY-DITCH THE DAIRY!!!!

    I urge you to make your products healthier, better for the environment, and better for the animals. Go vegan with your products!

    Kraft Heinz, with all the milk alternatives, there is ‘NO’ acceptable rational for not moving to all vegan ingredients. Your products will not suffer diminished taste when you switch to completely cruelty-free ingredients. As a matter of fact, many recipes use almond milk in the formulation, and IT TASTES GREAT!! Stop living in the past. What the world needs now is a more compassionate society. Profiteering on the back of cruelty, just because it’s legal, is not the future. You’ve come this far, now, why not go all the way.

    Ethics: “Just because we can doesn’t mean we should. Just because we always have doesn’t mean we always have to. Once we know better, we should choose better.”

    Compassion for animals should extend to your plate.
