Britain and the Plant-Based Diet
Plant-based meat brand Quorn recently released research similar to Dr. Gaye’s. Quorn’s report says 49 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds are already limiting their meat consumption. Another survey found that 69% of UK parents support the introduction of more plant-based foods in schools.
However, other studies have found that many consumers do not understand the meaning of the word “plant-based”, so there is still more room for development and improvement in the future.
Dr. Gaye’s report highlights the urgency of shifting to plant-rich food systems as soon as possible to protect the environment, health and global food security. Ryan Alexander, co-founder of No Meat May, said: “Key innovations such as cellular farming and air protein will help the global population reduce meat consumption, but at the same time, the No Meat May May Meat-Free Challenge allows you to try delicious and affordable food for 31 days. Plant-based food made easy.”
