Animal welfare labelling

About the group

Established in March 2022, within the EU Platform on Animal Welfare, the new sub-group on animal welfare labelling aims to provide the Commission technical expertise on better information to consumers on animal welfare whilst offering farmers incentives for improving it.

The discussion will be of a consultative nature and will explore the options for a legislative proposal on animal welfare labelling and its key components.

The composition of the working group is available in the Register of the Commission expert groups.
