The Dutch government is striving for a shift in the Dutch consumption pattern towards more vegetable proteins, for reasons of public health and the environment.
Three guest columnists kicked off: Gerda Feunekes (Nutrition Center), Sanderine Nonhebel (RUG) and Thea Smit (Vion) shared their vision of the protein balance based on their own responsibility, field and expertise. According to Feunekes, the Dutch have to reduce their portions of meat to go from 38 to 25 kg per capita. She also advocated for more fresh and less processed products on the plate.
Associate Professor Sanderine Nonhebel of the UG informed the guests in the COV Meat Café that the nitrogen crisis is only the beginning. Over the next ten years, the livestock and meat sectors will face greater challenges: the quality of surface water, subsidence in peat meadow areas and greenhouse gas emissions. Nonhebel encourages the sectors to proactively tackle these problems. After all, the government has the habit of only taking action at the last minute and then playing panic football at the expense of many companies. Read the article
