Kim Hill and panellists to discuss Peak Meat issues

Intensive production of meat and milk is a major source of greenhouse gases, water pollution and soil degradation. Many people are turning to a vegetarian or vegan diet.

But food production is vital to New Zealand’s economy and to ensuring the world has enough to eat.

The discussion will include the following topics:

  • How will changes in demand, modern technology and an awareness of ethical, environmental and health issues affect our agricultural production?
  • What are the impacts of meat and milk production?
  • People are eating less meat and dairy – why and what are the consequences on our environment, health, farmers, animal welfare and economy?
  • Is artificial meat going to take off?
  • Should we be planning for this?

Panellists

Nick Pyke, director, AgInnovate

Jocelyn Eason, Food Innovation, Plant and Food Research

Kevin Marshall, chairman, Riddet Institute
