173: Sweet Ritual & Cool School
Amelia Raley grew up in Northwest Arkansas, the capital of Tyson Foods, where it was a regular occurrence to see chickens on the side of the road, who had fallen from transport trucks. She was also nearby the University of Arkansas' animal experimental farms, where she witnessed cattle testing techniques and had first-had exposure to the animal agriculture industry.
After a period of time, Amelia was exposed to veganism by accident, while attending the University of Oregon, and today runs one of Austin's coolest shops, Sweet Ritual. She is also the founder of an all vegan ice cream school, Cool School, which is a 5-day course about commercial ice cream production and has hosted a total of over 50 alumni so far!
