Compassion In World Farming is the leading international specialist charity for farm animal welfare. Our vision is a world where farm animals are treated with compassion and respect and where cruel factory farming has ended. We believe that farm animals should not, and need not, suffer.

With over 50 years of campaigning, we have been instrumental in achieving dramatic reforms for farm animal welfare in Europe. The challenge for the future is to ensure that animal welfare becomes a fundamental consideration within the global food system.

We are working toward a whole food system that is truly kind, caring, and honest:

  • Kind to animals
  • Caring for both the environment and consumer health
  • And honestly labelled to allow ethical choices
