BRATWURST WARS: German farmers furious over claims no more sausage meat in 20 years
GERMAN farmers have reacted with outrage after a major sausage manufacturer vowed the nation would become VEGETARIAN in two decades.
The chief of Rügenwalder Mühle warned that in 20 years time Angela Merkel’s nation will only tuck into vegetarian sausages and schnitzel, despite the pork treat being a traditional family favourite.
In response, furious farmers have called for a boycott of the popular sausage manufacturer.
Nadine Henke, a North German pig farmer, tweeted: “We are consequently not buying any Rügenwalder products any more.”
Blogger Bernhard Barkmann added: “I, in any case, am avoiding their products, including meat products, consistently.
“Hopefully the veggie-boom will come to an end.”
