More people adopt a plant-based diet in the UK
According to the government’s
latest agricultural figures produced by the Department for
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), significantly fewer
chickens, turkeys and pigs are being killed for meat in the UK.
About these encouraging numbers, Viva! Campaigns manager, Justin
Kerswell, said, “Almost a billion animals are still killed for
meat each year in the UK, most of them living appallingly short
lives in squalid conditions and facing a terrifying death so we
clearly have a long way to go but we are winning. Concerns about
animal cruelty, health and the state of the planet are growing daily
and vegetarianism provides a solution to all of them. It’s needed
like never before.”
