If Madrid hosted the 1st International Technical Symposium on European Animal Welfare in November 2022, marking a milestone in the history of the sector at European level, Brussels will be the host city for the 2nd Symposium on 20 September. A unique meeting that will serve to learn about the main advances in the welfare of our livestock farms.
Why will the 2nd European Animal Welfare Symposium be held in Brussels?
Because the organisers of the event, the Spanish beef interprofessional, PROVACUNO, and the Hungarian and Spanish sheep meat interprofessionals, JTT and INTEROVIC, have decided to hold the event in one of the major European capitals, the headquarters of numerous EU bodies, in order to send out the message that they are committed to the welfare of their livestock farms.
As in the first edition, the event will last one day and, during it, the great connoisseurs and experts on welfare at European level, such as scientists, technicians, producers, certifiers, livestock farmers and different stakeholders in the production chain, will be able to exchange knowledge and impressions on the latest trends on a growing and necessary subject, both in the sector and in society in general.
What is the aim of the Symposium?
Above all, the event aims to give visibility to the various developments that are taking place throughout Europe, with improvements of all kinds, and also to address the new European legislation, which is expected to be approved in the remainder of the year.
The event will also serve to launch at European level the new B+ European Animal Welfare Commitment seal, an accredited seal that guarantees that the final product, the meat that reaches the consumer, is fully guaranteed to meet unique quality and animal welfare parameters.
Who will be attending the Symposium?
Representatives from some of the main international organisations have already been confirmed for the event, such as the Spanish Society for the Protection of Animals (SEPROBA), which will be the scientific director of the event, as well as DG SANTE, COPA-COGECA, EFSA, UECBV, Eurogroup For Animals, European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), ICF CONSULTING and Textile Exchange, which guarantees the success of the event.
The venue will be the Sparks Meeting in Brussels, although it will be available online and simultaneous translation will be provided for attendees.
