Billions of animals are raised in intensive industrial systems for human consumption. Many of these animals are in deplorable living conditions: they are placed in overcrowd spaces, in deficient groupings, deprived from open areas, subject to inadequate diets… These situations generate unnatural environments for animals that greatly impact their living conditions and represent an assault to their rights. The food industry and the textile industry are the most liable for causing intensive farming.
Every year 95 billion animals in the world are killed for human consumption. Which means that 3,000 animals are killed every second.
900 kg of grain are needed to produce meat to feed one person for a year. However, if that person consumed grain directly, it would only need 180 kg.
Between 60% and 70% of worldwide fishing is used to feed livestock.
