Compassion at 'Salon de l'Agriculture' 2012

News Section Icon Published 07/03/2012

For the third consecutive year, Compassion France exhibited at the ‘Salon de l’Agriculture’  – premier agricultural fair in Europe – from 25th February to 4th March. The 9-day long event attracted over 680,000 visitors and was a great opportunity for Compassion to raise awareness on farm animal welfare with the public and engage with major food companies that were present at the event.

How do you know if an egg is free-range? What are the different farming systems in France? What labels or brands are higher welfare?

This year, Compassion tested the visitors’ knowledge with a farm animal welfare quiz – an occasion for them to learn more about animal welfare and farming in France.

Over 10,000 people took part in the quiz, and over a third of them asked to receive further information about farm animal welfare and Compassion’s activities in France – all in all a great success for Compassion in France!
