Research commissioned by ProVeg Netherlands has found that 28 percent of Dutch people want to see a future without meat. One fifth would like to see the government ban slaughterhouses. The research was conducted by Kieskompas, with the VU University Amsterdam. Findings proved at odds with current dietary choices and have surprised experts.
A key reveal from the study is that 72 percent of the Dutch population think that fewer animals should be consumed. Self-describing conservatives aligned with this notion. 8,575 Dutch people were polled about their opinions on meat and the use of animals for food. All genders, age groups, ethnicities, education levels and political leanings are said to be represented.
