Published Apr 27 2021 at 5:00 PM GMT
  • This week, digital media brand Epicurious—a cooking publication owned by media giant Condé Nast—announced that it will no longer promote beef on any of its properties.
  • The publication committed to no longer including beef in recipes, articles, or newsletters, along with not featuring beef on its homepage and social media channels.
  • While Epicurious will not create new content around beef, recipes and articles about beef published in 2019 and prior will remain on its website.
  • Senior Editor Maggie Hoffman and former Digital Director David Tamarkin explained the decision in an article.
  • “For any person—or publication—wanting to envision a more sustainable way to cook, cutting out beef is a worthwhile first step,” they said, citing several statistics that point to the environmentally damaging effects of beef production.
