Company Honoured as an Innovative Pioneer
Mumbai – At a special function held at the Tao Art Gallery in Worli on Saturday night, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) honoured new Udaipur-based company Good Dot with a Trailblazing Business Award for developing delicious, affordable plant-based meat alternatives that are available through the company’s distributor, RCM. Good Dot uses special technology to turn healthy grain and plant proteins into foods that look and taste like meat – such as chicken and mutton – and have a similar texture. These products require no refrigeration, are cholesterol-free, can be cooked quickly, and cost about the same as meat.

“Good Dot is using plant power and technology to help Indians eat in a way that’s better for their health, animals, and the planet,” says PETA India Associate Director of Celebrity and Public Relations Sachin Bangera. “Good Dot’s products also help prove that vegan foods are extremely varied and that there’s no end to the kind of dishes that can be made from plants.”
Famous people from around the world who are vegan include former US President Bill Clinton, Richa Chadha, Kangana Ranaut, Alicia Silverstone, Mallika Sherawat, Joaquin Phoenix, Ayesha Takia, and Bryan Adams,to name just a few.
The consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy “products” is responsible for animal suffering on a massive scale. In today’s industrialised meat, dairy & egg-production, the throats of chickens are cut while the birds are still conscious, fish are suffocated or cut open while they’re still alive on the decks of fishing boats, and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth.
Also, eating meat and other animal-derived foods is devastating to health. The consumption of these items has been conclusively linked to suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Moreover, raising animals for food is a leading cause of water pollution and land degradation, and a United Nations report concluded that a global shift towards a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.
