What is Behind Cheap Meat

What is Behind Cheap Meat (2020)

The average price of one pound of chicken in 2019 was $ 1,92. That’s almost half of what it was in 1960. At the same time, the beef price fell by roughly 20%. Behind the cheap prices is an industry that aggressively consolidated on the last year. Companies like Tyson, JBS and Cargill dominated the market in the United States. The world nowadays produces more than three times the amount of meat as in 1970. All this while more and more evidence reveals that meat production has a huge negative impact on the environment, climate and human health.” –ENDEVR

“How did we end up here? In this video, we show what is behind very cheap meat. How conditions of suppliers, workers and animals have deteriorated so the meat can be as cheap as possible. And how strong the Meat Lobby is to pressure governments and get rid of regulations”ENDEVR
