Animal welfare doesn’t end with their health and the avoidance of suffering; it’s linked to the quality of their living environment and the welfare of the people who raise the animals, too. These are the priniciples of the One Welfare approach which inspires the European project Ppilow

For over two years technicians, farmers and consumer groups have worked to find new solutions to improve the welfare of free-range pigs and poultry on organic farms and those with “low input”, i.e. on farms that produce much of their own raw ingredients for the animals diet.

At Terra Madre we’ll discuss the results of the project.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°816172″ (Art. 29.4 of the Grant Agreement)
