According to the New York Times, Tyson Foods, the nation's largest meat company, reported a huge drop in net income for the last quarter. Tyson attributes this drop in profits to lower consumer demand for chicken and beef, as well as to debt-related charges. The company has lowered its expectation of full-year profits by $1 billion due to the lower demand for meat.
With more consumers recognizing that animals are individuals with unique personalities and interests, demand for animal products has started to decline. The choices we make as consumers truly have the power to create change. You can accelerate this change by adopting a plant-based diet, and encouraging others to do the same.
