Equalia NGO achievements in animal welfare

GallinasVictorias.jpg

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.

PROGRESS ON THE ANIMAL WELFARE IN AQUACULTURE

After a year and a half's worth of collaborative work with animal welfare organizations, the scientific community, aquaculture producers and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Equalia, among these organizations, have been able to create the first-ever Fish Welfare Guidelines for Spanish Aquaculture.

This initiative has been possible in part by grants from the Center for Effective Altruism, Animal Charity Evaluators, the Open Philanthropy Project Fund and Eurogroup for Animals.
