For over 15 years Compassion has pioneered a unique programme of corporate engagement, working with the world’s leading food businesses.

Our aim is to put farm animal welfare at the heart of the food industry and to encourage a move to more humane, sustainable and resilient food systems.

Rebalancing our food system

Our strategic goal aligns with the need to address the global climate, nature and health crisis and the challenge of producing humane, safe and nutritious food for all within our planetary boundaries.

Our work focuses on rebalancing our food system so that significantly fewer animals are produced, and those that are come from higher welfare systems, while progressively moving towards more regenerative, nature friendly farming.

Influencing corporate policy

We influence corporate policy, practice and performance by working in partnership with global food companies that can create change at scale.

Our programme aims to achieve a holistic approach to sustainable food production by:

  • driving transformational change for animal welfare
  • reducing our reliance on animal sourced foods
  • moving the food industry towards more regenerative, nature friendly farming.

We engage with leading food companies across Europe, the US, Asia and more globally through our partners’ supply chains.

To date, more than 2.5 billion animals are set to lead better lives each year due to the programme and our corporate partners’ commitments.
