BBFAW (Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare) published it’s 2014 Benchmark Report
The BBFAW is the leading global measure of farm animal welfare management and reporting in food companies. Its annual benchmark is now recognised as the key assessment of how global food companies manage farm animal welfare, and BBFAW’s work has directly contributed to many companies strengthening their management and reporting of farm animal welfare. Since its inception in 2012, the BBFAW has played a catalytic role in encouraging institutional investors to pay greater attention to farm animal welfare issues in their investment processes and in their engagement with the companies in which they are invested.
Four Dutch companies are included in the benchmark: Ahold (tier 3), FrieslandCampina (tier 3), Unilever (tier 2) and Vion (tier 3).
