The proceeds from the introduction of the fair price are intended for farmers because of (additional) performance in the field of the environment (nitrogen, circular agriculture, climate), animal welfare and nature. Since the autumn of 2020, Studenten voor Morgen has started a project together with TAPP to introduce the fair meat price in canteens of colleges and universities.
