    Harriet Grantm, 4 September 2019 (UK Guardian)

    “The world’s biggest producers of meat, dairy and seafood are failing to tackle the enormous impact they are having on the planet through deforestation, the routine use of antibiotics and greenhouse gas emissions…The producers are the ‘hidden’ supply chain, providing meat and dairy to global brands including McDonald’s, Tesco, Nestlé and Walmart…[Among other failings, the [Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index 2019 found] two-thirds of producers do not even measure all their greenhouse gas emissions let alone set targets to reduce them. These include Hormel Foods in the US, a supplier to McDonald’s…

Nestlé, McDonald’s and Walmart have all publicly committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions…The research argues that some of the companies, who between them have a value of $300bn (£248bn), are already suffering the costs of the deepening climate crisis…Cal-Maine Foods reported a 30% decline in revenues in the last quarter of the year alone due to extreme weather…” click here for more
