Vegan Mayo Company Caught in Yet Another Scandal

Vegan Mayo Company Caught in Yet Another Scandal

Does Hampton Creek bolster its sales with undercover shoppers to woo investors? A new report says yes

Hampton Creek keeps finding itself up scandal’s creek without a paddle.

The vegan mayo company Hampton Creek undertook a massive buyback operation for its own employees to buy the company’s mayo, a report from Bloomberg claims. Former employees told Bloomberg they bought massive quantities of Just Mayo and called stores asking for the product to bolster sales and investor interest. This scandal follows a lawsuit and federal probe that almost forced the vegan mayo company to change the name of its product.

“We need you in Safeway buying Just Mayo and our new flavored mayos,” wrote Caroline Love, former director of corporate partnership, in an April 2014 e-mail to contracted workers that was found by Bloomberg. “And we’re going to pay you for this exciting new project! Below is the list of stores that have been assigned to you.”

CEO Josh Tetrick has alleged the buyback scheme was really just a quality assurance check.

“Assessing the product from the customer perspective, more than anything, gets us out of the bubble of typical manufacturing,” said Melanie Myers, an executive who worked in the company’s corporate partnerships team, in a prepared statement. “This was and always will be the primary purpose of it, which is why we’ll continue doing it. We also thought it might give us a little momentum out of the gate.”

Is this illegal? The buyback schemes that bolster a company’s sales used to be illegal until 1982, when a law passed allowing corporations to repurchase their products without repercussions. It’s allowed… but it’s a giant headache for investors.


VBites Cheatin’ Slices

Although there are plenty of vegan options to have on bread, from hummus and peanut butter to Tartex and Wilmersburger , sometimes it’s nice to have something cold-cut like to put between your slices. These Cheatin’ slices from the UK-based VBites company are some of my favorite vegan cold-cuts. Compared to some tofu-based cold cuts, these have a softer bite that I find really pleasant, and they’re flavored in a way that they’re reminiscent of the meats they’re styled after, but not so much that it’s eerie.

They’re great on their own, with mayo and ketchup, grilled into a grilled cheese sandwich, or as a layer in a vegan club sandwich.

I bought this particular batch at Boutique Vegan , but I’ve also seen them at vegan specialty stores and health food stores.
