as someone who's been on the carnivore/zerocarb diet for the last year, i wish BC had some kind of legislation around this.
its not even so much about confusion because sure at a glance you may get confused but i know from experience as soon as you have a closer look at any packaging you can see some kind of marking/indicators its not actually meat.

my issue comes from most grocery stores have a small meat area so selection is already limited.
now it needs to share its limited space with unrelated products.

Most grocery stores have two aisles of meat and 1/4 of an aisle of vegan stuff here...

most grocery stores i know have one isle of meat.

usually with one side having the butching area and/or deli behind the cases/counter where the opposing side is either half hight open freezers or full hight closed door freezers.
if your lucky and its a big store it may be a extra wide idle and has a half hight open freezer island in-between each half of the isle.

ive never seen a grocery store with 2 isles of meat, im jealous of your area.

that said most grocery stores i know of have a frozen isle as well and there are some smattering of processed meat in them along with their ice-cream, frozen pizza etc.
