Danas nije lako biti ugostitelj. Nekad je bilo dovoljno nekoliko stolica, šank, par slika na zidu i - imate ugostiteljski objekt. No, vremena su se promijenila pa se kafići i restorani gotovo natječu u originalnosti i privlačenju mušterija.

Australski je restoran otišao korak dalje i navukao veliku kontroverzu. Naime, usred restorana su za noge obijesili prepariranu kravu s namjerom da pokrenuo dijalog o konzumaciji životinja. Pokrenuli su puno više…

Preparirana krava u restoranu Etica u Adelaideu, koja visi iznad stolova, odbila je brojne goste, a mnogi u online raspravi nisu birali riječi opisujući potez kao ‘odvratan’ i ‘gnjusan’, piše BBC.

Vlasnici kažu da su htjeli potaknuti goste da se zamisle nad stvarnošću konzumacije mesa. ‘Poza krave Schvitzy, kako smo je zvali, je namjerna. Ona tu nije obiješena radi dekoracije. Instalacija ima svoju svrhu - želimo privući pažnju na stvarne posljedice konzumiranja mesa i mliječnih proizvoda’, stoji u priopćenju koje su medijima uputili vlasnici Federico i Melissa Pisanelli, nakon što je izbila prava internetska pobuna.

Restoran su otvorili prije tri mjeseca, a između ostalog poslužuju i meso i mliječne proizvode. Inicijalno je zamišljen kao klaonica s velikim staklenim stijenkama umjesto vanjskih zidova. Nakon što su osmogodišnju kravu Schvitzy zaklali, obitelj Pisanelli kaže da je svo meso iskorišteno i pojedeno.

Online peticiju za uklanjanje krave iz restorana potpisalo je 4.800 ljudi dok su mnogi iskazali svoje nezadovoljstvo na stranici restorana na Facebooku. ‘Ovo je užasno, okrutno i šokantno za vidjeti. Ovime se stvara prostor da se ljudi osjete ugodnije kad je u pitanju smrt i mučenje drugih vrsta’, stoji u peticiji. Ni korisnici Instagrama nisu bili puno blaži. 'Ovo je sramota. Ljudskost je mrtva', 'Ne bih jeo tu ni da mi platite. Jednostavno bolesno', 'Odvratno mjesto, odvratni ljudi koji uopće ne poštuju život', samo su neki od gnjevnih komentara.

Pisanelli je za BBC rekao da je instalacija privukla i brojne pozitivne komentare.

We appreciate all the attention our new project is receiving. Our aim is to create thoughtful conversation. What does 'ethical' mean? It is a subjective term based on an individual's morals. Etica was created to promote animal welfare. This means that we work hard to select produce sourced from farms with the highest welfare standards. We never compromise on this. Importantly, there is a distinction between animal welfare and animal rights. Those who believe in animal rights do not believe in exploiting any animal for any purpose whatsoever. Etica has an agenda of authenticity and transparency. We understand that there is no kind way to kill an animal. As an animal welfarist institution, we ensure that the animals (and their products) we purchase are raised with care. Our purpose is to educate consumers on the origins of our food. It is designed to make consumers stop and think about the realities of the dairy industry. The project highlights information that is not readily available to consumers. More broadly, it is a challenge to the way in which our society tends to obscure from the origins of food. Visit our link at: http://etica.pizza/assets/84halifaxdoorsign.pdf We do not aim to influence on whether one should consume dairy, but rather, we urge our consumers to understand the origin of their food in order to make a conscious decision on whether to eat it. The pose of Schvitzy, as she was affectionately known, is purposely confronting. She has not been hung for decoration. The installation has a mission: it aims to draw a connection to the true consequence of consuming dairy. Schvitzy was eight years old. She was the by-product of a dairy farm in South Australia and belonged to a family at Mount Barker. We slaughtered her at her home. Her meat was entirely consumed and her skin was taken to hang in our venue. We are all at different stages of our own moral journey. It is easy to criticise others' ethics that do not align with one's own: Etica believes it is much more powerful to make an informed choice rather than adopt an ideology that one does not completely understand. Peace, love and pizza
