Compassion In World Farming, Ireland

About Compassion in World Farming - Ireland

Compassion in World Farming -Ireland started in 1992. It is part of the international Compassion in World Farming organisation, which was founded in England and now works to achieve better animal welfare standards in the EU and globally.

Compassion in World Farming campaigns solely for improvements in farm animal welfare. Specifically, we want to see an end to industrialised farming of animals. We believe that all farm animals should be kept in ways that allow them to carry out their natural behaviours and that do not cause them suffering or pain.

Compassion in World Farming's Chief Executive for the whole organisation, Philip Lymbery, explains the work of Compassion in World Farming as follows: "Compassion in World Farming is working strategically toward a whole food system that is truly kind, caring and honest - kind to animals; caring for the environment and consumer health; and honestly labelled."

Compassion in World Farming's views about farm animal welfare are based on scientific evaluation of animal welfare. Compassion in World Farming produces excellent reports on farm animal welfare issues. For a list of these publications, go to the Compassion in World Farming's UK website resources page.
