Belgium supermarkets: it is down to you
So why can’t we do it here? If we put 5-euro cents on the price of a chicken, this would easily pay for air scrubbing in Belgium and not hit the consumer’s pocket. The positive effect for the industry would be massive.
Don’t make the same mistakes we did in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands we see farmers protesting, traffic jams with 1500 tractors, and visits to politicians houses. In a country, many regard as being the most knowledgeable and advanced in agriculture. Clearly something went wrong. Is it possible to learn from the mistakes we made here to avoid it happening across the border. Let us hope so.
If the government comes with a practical solution to this significant problem, which we believe it will. Then the Belgium livestock could become the role model and top of the environmental class.
If all farmers can invest in such a sustainable business model as described above, then they not only lead the world but also make a healthy profit in the process.
