Equalia NGO achievements in animal welfare
Since 2018, we have secured commitments from more than 30 food companies and supermarkets to improve animal welfare standards.
If you want hens not to live in cages, or chickens not to live in overcrowded conditions, you share our mission.
We make your voice heard by major supermarkets.
Large supermarket chains advertise that all their products are animal welfare compliant.
But are they? At Equalia, we make sure that supermarkets commit to real, scientifically proven animal welfare standards.
