A World Without Meat

Could eating less meat help save the planet?

With the world’s population growing at an ever-increasing pace and life expectancies longer than ever before, the consumption of meat has also increased. But if this pace of growth continues, we would have to produce at least two times the amount of meat we currently do to satisfy global demand.

Scientists across the world have been searching for a more sustainable way to feed the planet, many promoting the use of soya to create replacements of typical meat-based foods. However, growing the crop has its side-effects : contributing to deforestation and use of harmful pesticides to name a few. Many are calling for a change in our eating habits, but what is the best solution? We meet scientists and industry professionals searching for a sustainable way to feed the world.
