Poultry and PIg Low-input and Organic production systems’ Welfare

 

The PPILOW project aims to co-construct through a multi-actor approach solutions to improve the welfare of poultry and pigs reared in organic and low-input outdoor farming systems.

The first originality of PPILOW is the participatory approach, involving all actors of the production chain from farmers to consumers, citizens, scientists and policy makers, for proposing and studying welfare improvement levers.

The second originality of the project is to provide a combination of practical solutions for welfare improvement that can be applied on a pan-European basis with specific
adjustments depending on citizen’s expectations and the target market (national legislation or consumer preferences).
