According to a recent Quartz article, social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have become an absolute pain for the meat industry.

The meat industry has faced relentless critiques from organizations and educated consumers. This week, speakers at the World Meat Congress in Uruguay said maintaining consumer trust is an uphill battle for the industry.

According to Ted Bilyea, an agribusiness consultant, “Social media is seen as the industry’s worst nightmare.

It’s important for educated consumers and organizations like Mercy For Animals to keep pushing the meat industry. Factory farming is terrible for the planet, animals, and public health. The good news is we’re winning and they know it.
