The Government recently ran a call for evidence to assess the impacts of different types of labelling reform for animal welfare. We are very grateful for the data and insights that Compassion in World Farming and many other stakeholders have provided. Based on the responses received, the Government has committed to consult on proposals to improve and expand current animal welfare labelling, covering both domestic and imported products, as well as equivalent measures in the food service sector. This was announced in the Government’s Food Strategy White Paper published on 13 June, and a summary of the responses to the call for evidence will be published shortly. We will continue to engage closely with Compassion in World Farming and other stakeholders from across a broad range of sectors as we develop these proposals.
