Fake meat, vegetarian tuna : are alternative meats really environmentally friendly ?
Veganism is gaining ground in France and around the world. Every day it conquers new followers, more exposure time in the media, a greater presence in catering areas. Veganism is no longer a diet seen as extremist, it has become for some a lifestyle, a philosophy of positivism that invites us to question our automatisms, to criticise our consumption patterns and to rethink our relationship with nature. The food industry does not want to miss the vegan train and is therefore starting to offer artificial animal protein, first by imitating red meat, and now with vegetable tuna.
 
But of course, there is nothing natural about making artificial meat or fish and therefore it's not really ecological. This is the observation of the essayist Gilles Luneau who criticises the production of synthetic "meat". Producing artificial meat would only increase dependence on the agro-food multinationals. Ecological production and consumption, which would take into account animal welfare, would simply require us to limit consumption to our real needs (we consume three times too much meat compared to the recommendations for a balanced diet). The purpose is not to end peasant farming, but adapt it to the need.
