I came across this interesting article on the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of the food we eat, recently published by the World Economic Forum. This is particularly interesting as it focuses on fresh produce, and less on processed foods.
The summary infographic is below. As usual, vegetarians can rejoice in their lower GHG footprint. But the dairy question remains unanswered. Cattle have very high footprint, so why is milk shown with low footprint? This is important to ask because India has the largest number of cattle in the world.
