Via the Times. New research shows UK beef sales fell 4% in 2019 and pork by 6.4%. Whilst meat free alternatives rose by 18%. Disruption of food system will only accelerate in next decade. Huge opportunity for UK farming to demonstrate it produces to the highest standards and is actively locking carbon up in well managed ecosystems



My fervent hope is that the consumer will be the actor that drives the changes to the economic system that are vital for environmental sustainability. The people in politics and corporate board rooms have abdicated their role as responsible leaders, but all is not lost if ordinary people buy products that are best in class environmentally.
