European Livestock Voice Debate: In a jungle of labels, what is driving animal welfare practices?
In a jungle of labels, what is driving animal welfare practices?
28 January 2021
11 to 12.30 PM
Animal welfare is an essential preoccupation for all actors in the livestock sector, as well as for consumers, and has led to debates at various levels, both national and European, including in the Farm to Fork strategy. As a consequence, various policies, standards and labelling schemes have sprouted from different sources like producers, NGOs, national or EU institutions… This debate will look at the impact on actual animal welfare and consumer confidence.
We are pleased to confirm the following speakers:
- Denis Simonin, Head of Animal Welfare Sector, DG SANTE
- Peter Sandøe, Bio Ethicist, University of Copenhagen
- Trine Vig Tamstorf, Danish Agriculture & Food Council
- Inès Grenho Ajuda, Eurogroup for Animals
