Title Why the meat industry could win big from the switch to veggie lifestyles Media name/outlet The Conversation Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 6/03/19 Description One of the largest meat processors in the UK, supplying supermarkets across the country with beef, pork, and lamb, has launched a plant-based meat alternative. ABP is the first UK meat producer to do so and its decision marks a significant shift for the industry. Before long, the meat producers could take over this growing market for meat-free alternatives.
What is worrying to meat companies is that around one in eight people do not eat meat anymore, and one in three are seeking to reduce or eliminate meat consumption.
And yet, compared to a lot of other countries, the UK meat industry has been surprisingly complacent when it comes to these developments. There have only been small efforts to develop meat-free products.
