This Is the Beginning of the End of the Beef Industry

Rowan Jacobsen in Outside:

Most offerings made with Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods are about a buck a burger more expensive. But it’s inherently cheaper to make a burger directly out of plants than it is to feed those plants to an animal first. Beef is currently cheaper because of scale. Big food companies can negotiate tremendously reduced prices for feed, and gigantic factories and supply chains are much more efficient to run.

Ethisch en ecologisch is vlees eten niet (meer) te verantwoorden en toch blijven we – ik ook – dat doen. Ik vraag me vaak af wat mijn kleinkinderen gaan veroordelen van wat wij nu doen, zoals voor ons dat bijvoorbeeld roken op restaurant is, of alles wat in Congo gebeurde. Het economisch model van de veeteelt staat zwaar op de helling en dan kan het plots heel snel gaan.
