Consumers are increasingly concerned about the treatment of animals and the well-being of farmed animals is strongly associated with the quality, and even the safety, of food. The demand for products complying with animal welfare standards is growing, giving producers who maintain these high standards a competitive advantage. The new ISO technical specification ISO/TS 34700:2016, Animal Welfare Management—General Requirements and Guidance for Organizations in the Food Supply Chain, will help the food and feed industry to develop an animal welfare plan that is aligned with the principles of the World Organization for Animal Health Terrestrial Animal Health Code and ensure the welfare of farm animals across the supply chain.
