I am a meat popsicle

Ingredients: Plant oils (coconut, rapeseed, sunflower, in varying proportions), water, sea salt (1.7%), faba bean preparation, emulsifier (lecithin), natural flavourings, colour (carotenes).I see Flora are pushing their plant based spread claiming it’s better for the environment than butter. I do wonder though how far those ingredients travel compared to a British diary farm. I tried to look on their website but I lost the will to live. I want to know if it’s really better for the environment like they claim or if they are just jumping on the plant based bandwagon.
Coconut has to be brought in from tropical climates. Sunflower may be from Eastern Europe.
Real butter, on the other hand, is all locally made. Cows just eat grass that happens to be growing in a field. Completely natural and (I suspect) lower carbon than the fake plant-based spread.
