Join the debate with MTJ

MTJ is to conduct its first ever online debate on the subject of sustainable meat production, open to everyone from industry via Twitter.

From Monday, 11 April, MTJ will be running the debate, under the tag #mtjdebate on www.twitter.com, and is throwing the door open for anyone with an opinion on the subject to air their views.

Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, said: “This is a first for us, but we think it could be a great way to stimulate some interesting comment and debate ahead of our Green Issue on 13 May.

“Anyone is welcome to take part and I expect the discussion to be interesting and wide-ranging, covering everything from the ‘eat less meat’ debate, to genetic modification and sustainable production methods.”

MTJ will be launching the debate from 10am onwards, and will let it run for a few days to give people plenty of opportunity to get involved.

“The idea is to offer a simple opportunity for anyone to take part,” added Bedington. “There’s no time pressure to be online at any particular time, and people can dip in and out as often as they like. Considering the theme of the debate, the ability to be able to run what is effectively a zero carbon discussion is appropriate.”
