Chicken consumption and the hidden consequences for animal welfare, our environment and public health

Chicken is the most popular meat in the UK and its consumption is growing. A report shows the true costs of production on this scale. 
Chicken is an affordable source of protein and has been recommended by some as a good choice for health and the environment instead of red meat. However, Eating Better's report "We need to talk about chicken" shows that recommending this switch can lead to big but often hidden consequences for the environment, our health, animal welfare and rural livelihoods.

This report shows data collected in the UK and was developed in collaboration with Compassion in World Farming, WWF UK and the Food Foundation.
