“We need by 2050 for the planet to eat 50% less animals than today’s levels.”
Plant Based News sat down with Leah Garces, US Executive Director of Compassion in World Farming, to discuss factory farming, building bridges with the so-called opposition, and shifting the world to a more plant-based diet.
Plant Based News attended last week's Extinction and Livestock Conference, where experts met to find solutions to the environmental impacts of factory farming, including wildlife extinction.
Fortunately, there is hope for the future of food.
Garces says, “Imagine the meat manufacturers reducing their animal farming in favor of plant-based, because it’s lucrative. This is actually happening. Cargill, one of the largest meat manufacturers in the world, just invested in Memphis Meats, which is a lab meat company. And Tyson just invested 5% in Beyond Meat. And once we win them over, for whatever reason, then the system really starts to change.”
