China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork, the second largest producer of poultry and the fourth largest dairy producer. How and why has China achieved this “meat miracle”? What are the politics of this growth and the role of Chinese and foreign transnationals? Can China continue producing and consuming more or are there social and ecological limits that create “peak meat”?
