‘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.”
