Welcome to the European Animal Welfare Platform website!
The platform is a three-year (2008-2011) European Commission’s sponsored project under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities. It brings together different stakeholders in the food chain, from farmers, processors, retailers, food producers, and NGOs. Through this stakeholder approach and an EU wide consultation animal welfare issues were identified and prioritized for Beef and Dairy, Poultry Meat and Eggs, Farmed Fish, Pork.
The final result of the Platform are strategic documents for every welfare issue, providing some background to the welfare problem, describing its impact and frequency of occurrence, and identify existing best practice for dealing with the problem as well as the need for more R&D.
Strategic documents for Beef and Dairy, Poultry Meat and Eggs, Farmed Fish, Pork can be found on the left menu items.
