Another great initiative to improve animal welfare.

Euronews: New food labels to identify Belgian producers that ‘go the extra mile’ with animal welfare

"Around 60 per cent of people say they would be prepared to spend more for products from welfare-friendly farming systems."

"The new label, called Beter voor Dieren (Better for Animals), will identify products whose companies have followed ethical procedures when raising animals used for human consumption.

The Flemish Ministry of Animal Welfare, which introduced the policy, hopes it will encourage consumers to be more conscious of issues surrounding animal welfare in food production
."

"The new label could have a significant impact on consumer choices. The EU survey Attitudes of Europeans towards Animal Welfare, published last month, found that 84 per cent of Europeans believe farm animals in their country should be better protected than they are currently.

Around 60 per cent said they would be prepared to spend more for products from welfare-friendly farming systems.

The Better for Animals label will appear on food packaging from producers who have endeavoured to go beyond the standard legal requirements for animal welfare during food production.

Actions might include reducing unnecessary transportation of animals, providing higher quality animal food or ensuring that animals have more than the legally required amount of space.
"

Here is what the label looks like. The number of + shows the rating.
