The 10th annual Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare (BBFAW) was launched on Wednesday 16 March 2022.
BBFAW is the leading global measure of farm animal welfare management, policy commitment, performance and disclosure in food companies. Now in its 10th year and with analysis on 150 of the largest food companies, it is the most authoritative and comprehensive global account of corporate practice on farm animal welfare.
In March and April 2023, the BBFAW conducted a pilot assessment of 150 companies against the new 2022 benchmark criteria. Instead of the usual public BBFAW report, this briefing paper summarises methodological findings from the BBFAW 2022 pilot benchmark and includes case study examples of company reporting. The briefing also confirms the assessment approach for the BBFAW 2023 assessments, which are scheduled to take place in October to December 2023.31st July 2023
Two consultation webinars were held on the 2nd February 2023 and offered companies the opportunity to hear more about the proposed changes to the 2022 BBFAW methodology and to submit responses live during the webinar.
