#11 Meatless Momentum

Slowly but surely, meat and dairy are on the decline in some parts of Europe. Some of us have by now figured out we need to drastically reduce our consumption of foods that contribute considerably to the deterioration of the environment.

Topics include: vegan, oatly, plantbased, sustainability, meatfree, veggie, oatmilk, jackfruit, veganism, vegetarianism, sustainable

Hear how that works, and how they’re building bridges between the plant-based world and the meat industry.
