Recommended Meat Tax

New Global Food and Farming Futures study recommends taxing and controlling grain-fed pig and chicken consumption.

In one of the largest studies of its kind, UK’s Foresight think-tank published the most recent “Global Food and Farming Futures” study. With contributions from more than 400 experts in 35 countries, the report predicts that food production will no longer be able to keep up with population growth in the next 40 years. In order to prevent further widespread starvation, the study states that food waste needs to be halved. Since grain-fed meat production is one of the most wasteful farming practices, the report recommends taxing and other “proactive measures” to reduce meat consumption. Even with such suggestions, the study finds that food prices will increase at least 50 percent by 2050.
