Sutton Bonnginton Campus

The Nutrition Society's summer conference, held at Nottingham University's superbly equipped Sutton Bonnington Campus will focus on 'The Future of Animal Products in the Human Diet: Health & Environmental Concerns'. According to the Heinrich Böll Foundation's Meat Atlas global demand for meat is growing. BRICS countries (Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa) in particular could see huge rises in meat consumption by 2022 due to a new, more affluent, growing middle class who demand more meat in their diets. While demand in these countries is growing, in other countries meat consumption is stagnating due to consumer concerns over saturated fats, dieting trends and meat-free alternatives. Is eating more meat preferable in terms of our nutrient intake, growing obesity levels globally and the environmental impact of resource-intensive meat farming and production? 

Come and find out more from leading world experts in the field, looking at latest scientific research and thinking on the use and sustainability of animal products in the human diet.  Registration for the conference will open later this month. 

Information on how to enter into the Postgraduate Competition is detailed here (submission deadline Friday 20 February).

Please click here for further information on how to submit your Original Communications submission by Friday 20 March.
