The owner of a vegan coffee says he has no choice but to close after several complaints from customers about not serving cow's milk.
The owner, Morgan Redfern-Hardisty, has been offering only plant-based products since the end of July at the Cool Beans Café in Mangawhai on the North Island of New Zealand.
He said that at this point, it seemed that his last day of work would be Labor Day, on October 22 in New Zealand.
The Cool Beans café is expected to close on Labor Day after refusing to serve cow's milk.
The charity trust of the Mangawhai area of activity (MAZCT), which manages the commercial operations of the coffee, told Redfern-Hardisty that there were complaints that he did not offer dairy products.
The trust warned the coffee owner that if he continued to refuse to serve non-dairy products, he could not renew his contract and would be forced to close his business.
After Cool Beans Cafe refused to offer customers "a selection of additives when ordering coffee," Trust president Colin Gallagher made the decision to close it.
The board that has the premise of the cafeteria has taken the decision not to renew the contract.
"That's where it ends for me," said Mr. Redfern-Hardisty.
& # 39; Some people have complained and it seems that I'm not catering to everyone's taste. When it comes to taste or suffering, suffering is not worth it. "
Redfern-Hardisty became vegan three years ago after developing Crohn's disease, a condition that causes inflammation in the digestive tract, which can cause abdominal pain.
Redfern-Hardisty has been a vegan for three years after developing Crohn's disease.
The owner said that his intention to switch to plant-based products was only to reduce the impact on the environment and provide a healthy alternative.
Coffee serves products based solely on plants as a means to reduce environmental impact.
