GOTL | Philip Lymbery, Global CEO Compassion in World Farming


 ‘Guests Off the Leash’ are short standalone audio comments and statements (‘shortcasts’) from conservationists, campaigners, charities, authors and members of our audience. If it needs to be said – say it here!

 Philip Lymbery, Global CEO of Compassion in World Farming, (CiWF), is an award winning author, an ornithologist, a photographer, and a self-confessed animal advocate.  For 25 years he has worked extensively on animal welfare issues, wildlife and the environment. He is a recognised thought leader, his lectures taking him across the globe to meet and exchange ideas with like-minded specialists, experts and individuals.

In May 2021 CiWF produced a position statement on Meat Alternatives, and it’s that position that Philip discusses in this shortcast.

  • Extract from CiWF’s position statement: “Compassion in World Farming believes that meat alternatives are a vital part of the solution in ending factory farming and transforming the global food system to one that is healthy, humane and regenerative. Alternative protein innovations, whether plant-based meat analogues, cultured meat from stem-cells or proteins from fermentation, offer the potential to replace the consumption of meat from intensively farmed livestock and thereby reduce animal suffering.”
