The EU Farm to Fork Strategy recognizes that better animal welfare improves animal health and food quality, reduces the need for medication and can help preserve biodiversity. In this context, the European Commission has launched the process to evaluate and revise the animal welfare legislation, including on animal transport, to align it with the latest scientific evidence, broaden its scope, make it easier to enforce and ultimately ensure a higher level of animal welfare.

During this webinar the Commission will provide an update on the state of play of the whole process.
