Brussels – Greenpeace and 19 other NGOs wrote to European Commissioners Timmermans, Kyriakides, Wojciechowski and Sinkevičius, calling on them to stop ignoring meat and dairy in the European Commission’s upcoming Farm to Fork plan.

Greenpeace EU agriculture campaigner Sini Eräjää said: “Producing and consuming meat and dairy has massive environmental impacts and is a major driver of climate change, so to ignore this in the Farm to Fork strategy is baffling. It’s time to start treating meat and dairy like other sources of pollution, and start talking about reduction targets.”
