Quorn Foods releases a statement applauding Ricky Martin’s honoring by PETA for his recent lifestyle change to vegetarianism.

On April 10, 2013, Quorn releases a statement following an article on Queerty by Dan Avery regarding the news of PETA honoring Ricky Martin after the singer converted to vegetarianism.

According to Queerty, PETA decided to honor Martin by sponsoring a rescued chicken in his behalf. The article mentions that, “Olivia was rescued by Florida’s Kindred Spirits Sanctuary, where she is now thriving. She spends her days taking dust baths, roosting in trees, and relaxing in the sun.”

Queerty reports that PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman praised Martin for making the switch to meatless meals. Martin himself went on Twitter to try and encourage others to make the switch as well. In the article, Martin was mentioned that those who go vegetarian “boost their energy and cut their risk of heart disease, cancer, and obesity—and they help save animals like Olivia, too.”

Quorn Foods representative, David Wilson, applauded Martin for making the switch to meatless meals. “Adjusting to such a strict lifestyle as vegetarianism is not always an easy switch.”

Wilson adds that celebrities who make the lifestyle change usually have a committed following afterwards. “When someone like Ricky Martin adopts the ideals of vegetarianism, other people will start to consider the benefits of going vegetarian as well.”

Wilson is confident that that those who want to make the change to a vegetarian lifestyle have the means to do so. “Quorn products can help make cutting meat out of your diet even easier, which I’m sure Olivia is happy about!”

Looking for a healthy alternative to meat? Unlike other meatless food companies, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a healthy, naturally occurring alternative protein source that replicates the taste and texture of meat, while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories. Quorn Foods offer a wide range of products, including ready-to-serve meals, snacks, and food for your barbecue -- as well as ingredients to make your own nutritious, meat-free dishes from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn's meatless meals lets you experience the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
