Farmageddon: the true cost of cheap meat
- Philip Lymbery

A global perspective on food and farming in the industrial age.
There’s a battle raging over the future of food and the countryside; some see industrial farming as the way forward to feeding a growing population.
In reality there is enough food for everyone, but much is wasted, not least by feeding precious crops to animals crowded and confined on industrial farms; a cruel and wasteful practice.
Compassion in World Farming, campaigns to end factory farming; the book, ‘Farmageddon: The true cost of cheap meat’, explodes the myths behind the system; our vision is better food for the benefit of animal welfare, people, the countryside.
In my talk I will share my experiences following my investigative journey to find the hidden cost of cheap meat and the devastating impact of factory farming on people, our planet and, of course, animals – contrasting their natural needs and behaviours with the conditions endured in production and slaughter and looking at what farm animals lives are like.
I will talk about Farmageddon being a wake-up call, exposing factory farming as one of the most pressing issues of our time; responsible for unparalleled food waste, damage to our health and the countryside, and the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet. I will also explore the solutions to averting Farmageddon.
