Actor Alan Cumming Asks Dairy Queen to Consider Going Plant Based

Actor Alan Cumming has written a letter on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asking why Dairy Queen has not gotten on board with plant based, non dairy options nationwide at their stores.

The 51-year-old Tony Award-winning actor addressed Dairy Queen CEO John P. Gainor, calling for the $2.5 billion company to follow the trend of ice cream favorites such as Ben & Jerry’s TCBY and Pinkberry to offer vegan ice cream.

“Given the increased global demand from people who suffer from dairy allergies and lactose intolerance as well as those concerned about their health, the environment, and animal welfare,” Cumming said, “it’s no surprise that the dairy alternatives market is expected to reach $19.5 billion in value by 2020. Dairy Queen has the opportunity to broaden its appeal by offering healthier,  plant based, and cruelty free vegan treats.”
