The dairy industry is in despair. Plant-based milks are giving it a run for its money, dairy factories are closing and reopening as nut-based milk companies, and major ice cream companies like Ben & Jerry’s and Breyers are rolling out vegan flavors galore. But what about butter and margarine? Now there are more vegan butter brands “spreading the love” than ever before, so it’s easy to help protect cows from abuse. But don’t just take our word for it—check out some of these products for yourself!
