Throughout the world, we consume too much meat, and consumption continues to rise. The consequences are severe for everyone: our health, the climate, our planet, and animal welfare.

The surge in production is linked to a profound transformation of animal husbandry, which has become specialized, detached from the land, and turned into an industry.

A system that needs to be radically reexamined, but in which direction? On one hand, by reducing meat consumption and rediscovering the cultivation and consumption of legumes, excellent allies for our health and soil health, as well as affordable sources of high-quality protein for all. On the other hand, by focusing on sustainable livestock farming that prioritizes the balance between animals and land, soil fertility, respect for animals, protection of pastureland biodiversity, care for mountain areas, and regeneration of lowland areas.

At Cheese 2023, an important discussion continues the path initiated in previous editions of the event. We will discuss sustainable livestock farming and how consumers can play their part by reducing consumption, avoiding waste, and supporting the work of those who care for the soil, pastureland biodiversity, animals, and the landscape.
