The bones of it
26th March, 2019

Since the announcement late last year that the board was open to the idea of selling meat, we have received a significant amount of communication from members. This is one of the biggest decisions that the Co-op has made and the board recognises and respects that it is a decision that can only be made by our membership.

We understand that deciding what, and what not to eat can be complex, and can involve a number of often conflicting factors… even more so when considering eating animal products. We want to open up the discussion and provide members with the opportunity to learn about and consider multiple perspectives before putting this decision to a member vote.

The board is preparing to hold a panel-style event that will bring together eminent environmentalists, regenerative agriculturists, animal rights advocates, and ethics and health professionals to discuss the science, fact, fiction and emotion surrounding this issue before we put the matter to a member vote. This panel will comprise a balanced and broad range of perspectives. Like the ABC’s Q&A program, members will be invited to send in questions in advance of the event to be addressed by the speakers. We hope to stage this event in Sept 2019 but speaker availability will determine the specific date.

We look forward to engaging in a lively conversation with our members that teases out some of the myriad factors at play in this decision. We hope that this will help our members make a more informed choice about what they eat, and help build respect for how others choose to nourish themselves and their families.
