Identifying collaboration opportunities to enhance the welfare of food producing animals and improve science-based welfare practices.

The IDF supports animal welfare science-based standards with a holistic approach to sustainability. As part of IDF’s commitment to this area of work, IDF Director General Caroline Emond participated in the first online sessions of this forum organized by the OIE and SSAFE July 2020.

The event aimed at identifying opportunities for collaboration between key global partners to enhance the welfare of food producing animals and improve harmonization of science-based welfare practices across borders and value chains.

Main points raised by IDF included the implementation of ISO Technical Specification 34700 within the dairy sector. The need for the continuation of the collective effort to ensure and facilitate its application was also reiterated.
