Labels should include welfare information, says FAWC
The Government should introduce a labelling system communicating the animal welfare provenance of the livestock products consumers buy.
The recommendation was made by the Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) in a report on welfare labelling last week. Professor Wathes, chairman of the FAWC, said: "Consumers are increasingly concerned about the characteristics of the product they purchase and, in context of farm welfare, increasing numbers are looking to buy those with a stated welfare provenance.
Retailers, caterers and other suppliers should therefore provide information that satisifies the purchaser about these characteristics."
