The world is facing major challenges and livestock production and consumption are key to addressing our global sustainability issues.
A billion of the world’s poorest people rely on animals for food, income, transport, social status and financial security. The livestock production sector alone employs 1.3 billion people worldwide.
Increased food supply and intensive livestock production can result in poor animal welfare – and does not always improve food security.
Farms with good animal welfare benefits producers, food businesses and consumers – creating more sustainable food systems.
Good animal welfare in livestock production can reduce the environmental impact and demand on our resources.
