The Swiss food-giant loses the battle for trademarking the term ‘The Vegan Butcher’ this week.

The Herbivorous Butcher had gone through the same application in 2017 and lost but were key in opposing Nestlé’s bid for the name this time around stating that “The phrase ‘vegan butcher’ shouldn’t belong to any single company. This is also a huge victory for small businesses like ours.”
