Will Finland be the first country to go vegan?
Posted on September 27, 2022
- When Finnish company Meeat Food Tech changed from traditional meat to plant-based they turned a profit for the first time in a decade.
- “Combining the ongoing climate crisis with the abysmal feed yield and calorie conversion rates for animal proteins, it makes no sense to continue on that path,” CEO Mikko Karell says.
- Accelerating the transformation to a purely plant-based food system globally depends on what happens in the large countries where living standards are improving, particularly China and India.
- Finland’s meat consumption is less than the US or Australia, but is among the world’s top dairy consumers per capita.
