Health and Food Safety Commissioner, Stella Kyriakides, will participate in the EU Platform on Animal Welfare for the first time. She will present the key animal welfare actions as part of the newly adopted Farm to Fork Strategy. Over the next five years, the Commission will conduct an ambitious programme, including an evaluation of the legislation, and will consider options to better inform consumers on animal welfare. For this purpose, the Commission will announce the creation of a subgroup on labelling under the Platform.

The work programmes of the EU Reference Centres for Animal Welfare will be presented by Virginie Michel, Director and coordinator of the EU Reference Centre for Animal Welfare – Poultry and small-farmed animals; and by Hans Spoolder, Director and coordinator of the EU Reference Centre for Animal Welfare – Pigs.
