More than four in 10 young adults are ‘worried’ about the environmental impact of eating meat, according to a new poll.

The poll of 2,036 UK adults, which was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of The Grocer, found that 38 percent of consumers aged 18-24 either have sustainability concerns about eating meat – or have shunned it from their diet altogether.

The new data also shows that four percent of young adults are either vegetarian or vegan.

Of the 55+ age group, only 20 percent said they had environmental concerns.
