Plant Based News is a partner for the scheme. PBN Co-founder Robbie Lockie said: "The idea that we can live without meat is an alien concept for much of Western society.

"Initiatives like WMFW are a great way to get people thinking about alternatives and ways they can cut back or cut out animal products completely.

"At Plant Based News we are pragmatists and we understand the challenges many people face in staring the transition away from animal products.
