Abstract or project description
Kelly is working on an Animal welfare project in the food industry. She shares a great passion for animal rights, and shes working towards finding a solid foundation for implementing or maybe proposing new welfare regulations in the industry; Shes is researching Countries such as Switzerland and S.Korea which have the best and most strict rules and are highly efficient with low inflation rates and comparing them to the current regulations we have in the united states to demonstrate the difference and introduce Points of improvement.
Animal welfare, not only for companion animals, but also for livestock has been discussed for a long time, regarding its physical and mental well-being. Being incorporated into the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises on Responsible Business Conduct of the The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), animal welfare is now encouraged internationally and protected by legislations in most economically-stable countries. However, there is no global treaty governing the protection of animal welfare, which results in extreme fluctuations in the degree of animal welfare protected by law in each country. Thus, this paper aims to compare and contrast the animal welfare legislations regarding the egg, pork and dairy industry in three countries, South Korea, Israel, and Switzerland in order to identify differences and investigate the improvement able to be made to each country.
