We Concern on Animal Health and Welfare
We believe animal health and welfare are necessary for sustainable and productive livestock. Animal products do not only represent a source of high-quality food but are also a source of income for many small farmers and animal holders within our supply chain. Changes in livestock production increase the potential for new pathogens to emerge, grow and spread from animals to humans on a global scale. Healthy animals are important to maintain healthy people and a healthy environment. Find out more about our Animal Health and Welfare Policy here.

5. Freedom from fear and distress
