World’s sixty largest meat, dairy and fish farms ranked in new sustainability index

A group of concerned investors has examined the sustainability of the world’s largest fattening farms and dairy factories that supply the global food industry. And the results aren’t mouth-watering, EURACTIV Germany reports.

Food companies are increasingly committing to producing more sustainably, as part of their marketing strategies. For example, Nestlé plans to reduce the CO2 emitted from its foods by 35% in the next decade. And McDonald’s wants to recycle all its packaging by 2025.

This is good news for the environment, but what about those companies that supply to these food giants?

The conditions under which meat, eggs and dairy products are produced for the global market are still catastrophic for the most part, and contradict the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
