The organisers of the initiative call on the Commission to exclude livestock farming from activities eligible for agricultural subsidies and to include ethical and ecological alternatives, such as cell farming and plant proteins.

They also ask to introduce incentives for the production and sale of plant-based and cellular agricultural products.

Cellular agriculture is a new technological branch that allows the production of meat, milk, eggs, bones, skin and much other organic material directly in the laboratory, starting from a few cells that are multiplied almost indefinitely.
