“With the damage factory farms cause to the environment, workers, our food system and ultimately human health, it is easy to see that the industry is heading towards a financial reckoning.”
Evan Segal, Former Chief Financial Officer,
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Why are more and more investors
avoiding factory farming?
Factory farming is subject to increasing regulation and the industry faces continued financial disruption, with increasing competition from plant-based and cultivated meat alternatives.

Factory farming is the single greatest cause of animal suffering. The industry has a long history of abusive practices - and consumers are demanding more ethical choices.
