Project results from the field of application „sustainable production and consumption of meat“

Results from the first project workshop

The first workshop in the field of sustainable production and consumption of meat took place on 28 June 2015 at the International Management Forums for Gastronomy & Catering. It was organized by Öko-Institut and gv-praxis, an economic journal on communal catering.

The target audience for the workshop „Less meat on the plate – putting the trend into action” was kitchen managers and decision-makers. Participants discussed the major barriers and possible solutions to the reduction of meat consumption in communal catering, and to increasing the availability of attractive, meatless alternatives. The re-design of meals and menus as well as the necessary re-education of personnel were found to pose particularly serious barriers. For example, the selection of easily implemented and attractive recipes represents a current challenge for kitchen chefs. A recipe database, in which successful dishes are identified and rated, could be a possible solution here. Furthermore, it is important to motivate the entire kitchen staff and prepare them for new tasks. Lastly, (continued) education should be improved and expanded to address these elements.

Results from the first project workshop at the International Sustainability Transitions Conference on 9. September 2016

The first project workshop took place at the 7. International Sustainability Transitions (IST 2016) Conference in Wuppertal, Germany. As one of several side events, the workshop presented project results, supplemented by additional input from external experts for all three fields of application. An open discussion of the results then took place.

External expert Dr. Ulrike Klöble from the Association for Technology and Structures in Agriculture (KTBL) spoke on the relationship between agriculture and the transformation of meat production.

Results from the second project workshop on the SustEcon Conference on 25. September 2017

The second project workshop took place at the SustEcon Conference in Berlin, Germany. As part of various side events, the project teams presented their primal results from all the fields of application, supplemented by additional input from external experts. Subsequently, an open discussion of the presented results took place.

On the topic of sustainable meat production and consumption, the project internal expert Dr. Dietlinde Quack (Senior Researcher at Öko-Institute) spoke on understanding & governing the transformation to sustainable meat production & consumption using the Trafo 3.0 heuristic.
