Representatives of farmers, animal welfare organisations, EU and Third Countries governments, international institutions, retailers and academics will be attending the Forum, which starts on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 22. Experts from all continents will be able to present and discuss positive experiences of inclusion of animal welfare in the trade environment.
