Sales of meat are falling

Vegetarian and vegan diets are growing

  • It’s very interesting to note that the message that eating less meat can be good for you and good for our planet is finally gaining momentum in the UK.
  • Sales of red meat fell the greatest, and it has been reported that people consumed 3.6 million fewer animals in the first 6 months of 2019.

    All the major supermarkets are waking up to the commercial opportunities of selling vegan and vegetarian options, clearly driven by profits, but who cares when the outcome is potentially helping our health and reducing the strain on resources.

    I’ll be writing more on this topic in the coming weeks, but it’s a positive way to start 2020.
