agricultural politician of the SPD and the Greens have argued for a higher VAT on meat.

“I am in favour of the VAT reduction for meat pick up and earmarked for more animal welfare”, said Friedrich Ostendorff, agricultural policy spokesperson of the Green group, the “world”. It was not to explain why meat with 7 percent, and, for example, oat milk, with 19 percent will be taxed.

Rainer Spiering, agricultural policy spokesperson of the SPD, which looks similar to this: “A meat tax, for the sake of simplicity to increase the VAT to 19 percent, would be a possible way, however, refers mainly to the consumers,” said Spiering. Also, meat producers and food retailers have to make their contribution to sustainable livestock production.

The CDU agricultural politician Albert Stegemann was open for the advance of the animal protection Association, according to a meat tax. “Such a tax can be a constructive proposal. This would have to be more revenue, but necessarily as an animal welfare premium is used to support pet owners in Germany during the reconstruction.” The way to a socially sustainable, accepted animal husbandry cost billions of euros, which could carry the farmers in Germany alone.
