For the sake of animals, the environment, and human health, we must make fundamental changes to livestock systems. The market itself is telling us as much: meat consumption is decreasing, especially among young people.

Creating a viable alternative will be difficult, because the costs of raw materials are high, and the race to the bottom to remain competitive puts conscientious producers at a disadvantage.

How can we transition to an ethical, environmentally sound model? In this conference, we’ll address this question with producers and breeders who have changed course. We’ll learn, for example, about how pig farmers and pork butchers in Emilia-Romagna are working to improve animal welfare in collaboration with Compassion in World Farming (CIWF).

The panel of speakers will be published soon.

This event is free and open to all who are interested. To participate, please book a spot on the website (just click on the “Register” button on the event page and leave your email address). We recommend arriving at the Arena 10 minutes before the start of the event. The organizers reserve the right to reassign your seat if you are not present within 5 minutes of the start.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is presented by Slow Food, the City of Turin, and the Piedmont Region. We look forward to seeing you at Parco Dora in Turin from Thursday, September 26 – Monday, September 30. Through food, we can rediscover ourselves as part of nature. #TerraMadre2024
