More than 80 leading European food companies came together to talk about animal welfare at our Good Farm Animal Welfare Forum in Paris yesterday (6th November).
Food companies who have already placed animal welfare at the heart of what they do shared their experiences.
We were delighted by the enthusiasm and interest shown, which demonstrates that European food companies are taking animal welfare seriously.
Good Dairy Commendation winner
We were pleased to present leading French retailer Monoprix with a Good Dairy Commendation.
Monoprix was awarded for their commitment to ensure better welfare for the dairy cows that produce its UHT milk, which includes giving them access to pasture during the summer months.
Monoprix was the first French retailer to receive a Good Egg Commendation last year for committing to use only cage-free eggs for their own brand. Their Good Dairy Commendation is also a first for a French retailer.
Good Chicken Award winner
We were thrilled to present leading Italian chicken producer Valverde a Good Chicken Award for its commitment to improve the welfare standards of meat chickens. This is a hugely significant commitment which is set to benefit more than 1.5 million chickens every year.
