Netherlands Government Recommends Maximum of Two Servings of Meat Per Week
In an excellent move that we hope will be replicated across the globe, the Netherlands Nutrition Center is giving everyone a very good reason to “go Dutch.”

After measuring the ecological impact of the average Dutch person's diet, the center concluded that eating less meat is better for people's health and the environment and recommended that Dutch citizens cut their meat intake to two servings per week.

A few other countries also recommend a reduction in meat consumption for both human and environmental health, but so far, livestock industries have succeeded in watering down recommendations in the United States and most other countries have altogether ignored meat consumption's overwhelming harm to the environment.

The trends we're seeing from countries like the Netherlands and think tanks like Chatham House give us hope, but there is still a lot of work to do.

At The Good Food Institute, we're working to develop, support, and promote plant-based and "clean" (i.e., cultured) food companies that will provide cost-competitive, delicious meat alternatives.
