Taking action

Have you ever ventured to a new coffee shop to purchase your daily cup of joe only to be charged an outrageous amount for soy milk? Us too! Despite the fact that many Australians have been diagnosed with lactose intolerance, most cafes and restaurants are still enforcing a 30-70 cent surcharge. Here at ingrediEAT, we believe there’s no point complaining about an issue if you’re not willing to do something about it. That’s why we have created a petition to eliminate the surcharge for soy milk and stop alienating coffee drinkers who suffer from lactose intolerance. After receiving 100 signatures we plan to send the completed petition to the Australian Coffee Traders Association Inc, an organisation dealing with important issues within the Australian coffee industry. The petition has already attracted a great response and so far we have received 12 signatures. Here are some of the reasons our supporters have cited for joining the fight for soy milk equity:

Yes, someone admitted to us that non-soy milk gives them the runs. But every signature counts, and that’s why we need you guys to chip in and have your say!

  1. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I ventured into Qlounge at UNSW and was only charged 40c! Normally I’d expect 50c+ AND I got service with a smile.

  2. Great initiative. Im a soy drinker and drink only one cup on a good day. So that’s an extra $3.50 im paying a week which is $182 a year for the “luxury” of soy. People suffer enough from food intolerance, they shouldnt have to pay for it also. Great blog!

  3. Great idea! It’s really unfair for the extra charge plus this is definitely going to be welcomed by many different groups! Nice work!
