“If animal welfare is close to your heart, this blog from Compassion in World Farming CEO and animal advocate Philip Lymbery is shining a light on animal reform. aiming to inform, educate and debate the future of food, taking a 360-view of all aspects of the meat industry – humanity, animals (farmed and wild) and the planet. A difficult, but important, subject, Philip himself warns that the content of the blog ‘won’t always be pretty, but it’ll give you the facts and make you think – it is for all those who want to hear about the here, the now and the future’.

For those who want to see a future still filled with animals free and out in the wild… a must read” –  Vuelio June 2020
