Borough Talks

The meat vs non-meat debate

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Lunchtime discussion on Zoom as part of the Borough Talks series.

The rise of veganism is often portrayed as the argument for good planetary and personal health - the implication being that meat production and consumption is, the problem. There is increasing acceptance, though, that the real picture for us and for the planet is not nearly as simple as that. This event will lead with a positive discussion of the environmental nuances of how meat and non-meat produce are farmed, as we try to unpick and give perspective to this too-often polarised debate.

With chef and climate-change campaigner Tom Hunt, who recently published Eating for Pleasure, People & Planet and Jan McCourt whose Northfield Farm butchery has been trading at Borough Market for 21 years championing slow rearing of rare and traditional British breeds.

Hosted by Angela Clutton.
