Consumers have started demanding retailers to offer sustainable products for a number of economic and ethical reasons. For products containing animal-derived materials, there is a particular focus on providing the appropriate and careful management of those animals. For brands and retailers to remain relevant, sustainable products from animal origin must establish applicable animal welfare standards in a transparent manner.
The concept of good animal welfare examines health and nourishment, emotional state and ability to express normal behaviors. Many different animal welfare standards can be referenced; however, basics such as good feed, adequate housing, good health, and the ability to engage in normal animal behaviors are the foundation of any reliable assessment protocol.
How can Eurofins Help
