The Meat the Future exhibition presents the latest research on the environmental and health impacts of eating meat, and provokes discussion and dialogue. Visitors encounter familiar scenes: a butcher’s shop window, a bistro interior, a supermarket ready meal aisle. They are asked to contemplate what others think of meat-eating, see the different levels of meat consumption in different countries, and experience the selling tactics of retailers that entice us to buy more of certain types of foods. Various researchers from MSD departments such as the Department of Primary Health Care and the Department of Population Health have contributed significantly to the exhibition.
The exhibition presents a range of alternatives to the way we eat now, from simply eating less meat to adopting high-tech alternatives. It has now been extended to June 2022.
