About Us

This Dish Is Veg (TDIV) was created by Daelyn Fortney and Eric Fortney in an effort to share articles, recipes, reviews and newsworthy information with those interested in vegetarianism, veganism, eco-friendly living and animal welfare.

Since 2006, the site has offered content from a wide variety of talented contributors from all over the world.

Of course TDIV's claim to fame comes from a 2012 story that received global attention Beware: Starbucks' Soy Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino is NOT vegan. TDIV's Daelyn Fortney, with the help of media and an all-around grossed-out society, was able to convince Starbucks to halt its use cochineal extract, a bug-derived product, and replace it with a natural tomato-based alternative called lycopene.
