Have you ever considered going Meat Free? Why not try it for World Meat Free Day? Quorn are one of the event’s official partners, and we are encouraging people to make a change.
By pledging to be involved on June 13th 2016, you wouldn’t even have to change your meal plans. Fancy eating Meatballs, Chik’n Nuggets or a Quarter Pound Burger? You still can! Just Meat Free. Check out our various Quorn products for some new ideas!
Products like Quorn Grounds are high in protein and a source of fiber, but with lower saturated fat and calories than the meat equivalent. But most importantly – doesn’t contain any meat, so is perfect for World Meat Free Day. Why not take part for a good cause – helping to protect our planet?!
Celebrity Chef Jean Cristophe Novelli is amongst those in support of the day. He said: “I did not realise that I could reduce my carbon footprint so significantly by making a few minor changes to my lifestyle, such as reducing the amount of meat I was eating.”
This is just one of the many benefits to be found if people cut back on meat consumption. Meat Free day, which is getting worldwide coverage, is hoping to encourage people to swap meat for a meat free diet, for just one day as a catalyst for behaviour change. This will mean people will be consuming far less calories and saturated fat, whilst also reducing their water consumption and Co2 emissions.
By 2050, judging by the rate of current growth, the world’s population is expected to grow by almost 30% to over 9 billion people. If people’s eating habits don’t change between now and then we will not have enough resources on the planet to produce the same levels of meat that are eaten today. It only takes a small change from each individual to do their bit for the planet, and World Meat Free day is a great opportunity.

There are some downloadable promotional materials for your blog or social media, and you can get involved in the conversation with #WorldMeatFreeDay or #WMFD in the build-up.
