    Title: “Animal Welfare: a Key part of sustainability”

    Synopsis: The food business team of Compassion in World Farming works with food companies to raise the baseline for animal welfare in their supply chains. Animals should have a good quality of life and that should be an incremental part of the food business’ wider sustainability agenda. The resilience of a sustainable system comes with being adaptive, robust and regenerative. The increasing concern of consumers about animal welfare makes it almost impossible not to address it when planning and building a resilient food production system. This presentation will look at how food companies can address animal welfare in their supply chains and integrate it into the wider sustainability agenda.
