European Good Farm Animal Welfare Forum

Compassion’s European Good Farm Animal Welfare Forum will take place in Paris on Thursday 6th November 2014.

This European Forum builds on the success of our UK Forum in June, and will bring together key players from the food industry across Europe – from manufacturers, retailers, food service and producers – to address the challenges and opportunities posed by farm animal welfare. Speakers will include representatives from Unilever, Danone’s ‘Les 2 Vaches’ brand and SPA Foods.

Attendees of the UK Forum said it was an excellent chance to make various links across the supply chain and to discuss the relevance, importance and real value of animal welfare, with the 100% of those that fed back on the Forum saying they would recommend the event to a colleague.

Date: Thursday 6th November 2014

Time: 14.00 – 19.30

Venue: Conference Center Edouard VII, 23 square Edouard VII, 75 009 Paris


The afternoon will comprise two plenary sessions:

  • Plenary 1 – Participants will hear from a range of Compassion’s partners about why and how they have addressed farm animal welfare, focusing on the key lessons learned and the business benefits.
  • Plenary 2 – This session will provide industry insights on how to communicate effectively on farm animal welfare to both consumers and the investment community. A panel of stakeholders will share their experiences in engaging consumers on animal welfare.
Participants will be welcomed from 2pm, and the event will be followed by a drinks reception to allow for networking opportunities.


Please note that participant spaces for the forum are limited and priority will be given to those working for or with major food companies. To reserve your place at the forum or for more information please click here.
