Our Co-Founder Lorraine Platt was delighted to introduce the Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation to the Prime Minister at the Esher & Walton Conservative Association Dinner at which Theresa May was the guest of honour.
Lorraine Platt said “We were delighted to introduce our new campaign to the Prime Minister. We look forward to helping to advance farm animal welfare with MPs. Our campaign was established in 2016 to raise awareness on the lives of billions of animals reared on intensive farms around the world and how this impacts upon animal welfare, the environment and people’s health. We want to highlight the action people can take to help advance farm animal welfare.
Why does it matter? Consumers’ growing interest in how animals are treated on farms and in livestock facilities has created a strong demand for further information. Animal welfare is an increasing concern amongst the general public, who frequently look to Government to take the lead in both maintaining and improving standards.
The truth is that while progress is being made, we could be doing a lot more to improve animal welfare and this is where we hope to contribute our efforts”.
