Compassion in World Farming has produced a wealth of useful materials on the many interconnected issues surrounding our global food system.

Our Global CEO, Philip Lymbery, has produced three books on the subject: the Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat documenting an investigative journey behind the closed doors of the factory farming industry; and Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were which examines the horrifying impact of factory farming on some of the world’s most iconic wildlife species; and his latest work, Sixty Harvests Left, takes its title from a chilling warning made by the United Nations that the world’s soils could be gone within a lifetime. 

We have also produced a substantial number of reports, briefings, position papers and other useful materials on issues including: the need to reduce meat consumption, why octopus factory farming should not be developed; a charter for a regenerative food policy; the hidden costs of industrial agriculture; and alternative proteins.

Philip has also co-edited Cultivated Meat to Secure Our Future, Hope for Animals, Food Security and the Environment. This thought-provoking book explores the potential of cultivated meat in beating climate change and extinctions.

Working in partnerships with other organisations - including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Aquatic Life Institute – we have produced high-profile reports and we are keen to collaborate with like-minded NGOs and other international organisations.
