Janusz Wojciechowski, the EU's agriculture commissioner, wants to crack down on the environmental impact of intensive animal farming, but apart from support from animal welfare groups, his calls have so far met with mixed reactions.
After environmentalist George Monbiot’s controversial “Apocalypse Cow” documentary recently suggested that we may soon see the end of all farming, EURACTIV took a look at cultured meat to see what it is and where we're at.
Even more than climate change, animal welfare will be the main challenge for the future of livestock farming and will lead to reconsider the entire system around the health of animals, a French farming researcher told EURACTIV.com.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative

EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
