New report shines spotlight on farm animal welfare standards
Mike Baker, WSPA CEO, helped to launch the ground-breaking Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare (BBFAW) report at an investor event in London this week. The report looks at 68 global food companies and reveals that many companies in the industry could be doing more to manage the business risks or opportunities associated with farm animal welfare. It is the first structured benchmark of the world's leading food companies - looking objectively at the state of farm animal welfare policy within the food industry.
