Vegan butcher shop The Very Good Butchers in Victoria, BC will appear on Canadian investment reality show Dragon’s Den—similar to American television program Shark Tank—on November 29. During the episode, company co-owners James Davison and Mitchell Scott pitch their business to six dragons (investors) and serve them an all-vegan Christmas dinner that includes their meatless products, such as Glaze Roast Beast, Bacon-Wrapped Cocktail Bangers, Truffled Mac, Brussels sprouts with maple and bacon, and a charcuterie board with Grilled Smokin’ Sausage, Pepperoni, and Bangers in Blankets. “We had a great experience filming for CBC’s Dragon’s Den in Toronto,” Scott told VegNews. “Most of the dragons were intrigued by the concept of a vegan butcher shop and excited about the potential for plant-based meat alternatives.” The Very Good Butchers opened in February 2017 and expanded to a larger space within four months to accommodate growing demand for its products. The company is currently hosting a FrontFundr equity crowdfunding campaign to raise capital to increase production capacity.
