HLS SALDF, Food Law and Policy Clinic, FoodSoc, and ALPP bring Leah Garces to campus to discuss Corporate Strategies for Animal Welfare: New Ways to Improve Conditions for Animals.
Leah Garces is the USA Director for Compassion in World Farming and on the Board of Directors for Global Animal Partnership, one of only three third-party animal welfare auditing systems in the USA. Leah’s organization focuses primarily on corporate partnerships: collaboration with food businesses and making real and practical improvements for farm animals, in particular poultry. With an expertise in broiler welfare, Leah provides strategic and technical advice to food businesses to advance policies and practices that result in measurable improvements for farm animals.
Compassion in World Farming has already made tremendous strides to improve the conditions of animals used for food, forging partnerships with many food corporations that have committed to improve the welfare of their animals. Learn more about this progress, and how it was made at this talk.
