Factory farming dominates much of EU agriculture and is spreading to the developing world. Industrially produced meat is resource-inefficient, damages the environment and harms our health. And it’s responsible for great animal suffering. Compassion in World Farming’s new Manifesto sets out policies aimed at introducing a new agricultural model with high standards of animal welfare that provides nutritious food and works in harmony with the environment.
Compassion believes there is a risk that the European Commission’s forthcoming Communication on sustainable food may focus primarily on reducing food waste (which is of course vital) without giving sufficient attention to the benefits of moving away from industrial livestock production. This Impact Assessment assesses the environmental and health consequences of a Communication that fails to encourage a move to more resource-efficient and sustainable forms of animal husbandry and healthier diets (16 pages)
