CIWF reports that more than 80% of the animals raised in the EU every year are factory farmed. The cruel factory farming practices are often hidden from the public view.
CIWF, RSPCA, WSPA and the Soil Association have come together as a partnership and are campaigning for consumers to be able to choose higher animal welfare foods and demand a method of production labelling on all meat and dairy products sold in the EU. They believe that all foods should be labelled honestly so we know where food comes from and how it is farmed. Even though it is a big thing to ask, it is possible. For example, eggs produced in the EU must be labelled with their production method so that customers can decided on the type of farming they wish to support.
The campaign will be officially launched later on this year but if you are a UK resident you can help now by clicking here and contacting your MEP and adding a few details to the readily prepared message explaining that you have a right to know where your food comes from and asking them to support the campaign calling for method of production labelling to be extended to all meat and dairy products.
