Question reference: E-000487/2021

On 15 December 2020, the Council approved its conclusions on animal welfare labelling, in which it invites the Commission to submit a proposal on an EU-wide animal welfare label for food produced under animal welfare standards higher than those provided by EU legislation(1).

When preparing the proposal, the Commission should inter alia consider the creation of a standardised EU logo, the determination of easily understandable protected terms and the gradual inclusion of all livestock species, covering their entire lifetime, including transport and slaughter, and giving due consideration to all their living conditions.

Such a label, in order to further improve animal welfare in the EU, should notably allow for market recognition and better remuneration of the additional efforts made by producers, in particular farmers(2).
