Meat and dairy are water and land intensive foods which have a huge impact on the environment. A shift towards a plant-based diet can help reduce this impact and improve utilisation of natural resources. More and more people are becoming aware of the impact of their food choices on the planet. As a result, they are choosing fewer animal products in their diet such as meat, fish, eggs or dairy. Consumption of these products is the largest contributor to the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.
