European Network of Reference Centres

The 2995th Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held in Brussels on 22 February 2010 held an exchange of views on the Commission's report "Options for animal welfare labelling and the establishment of a European Network of Reference Centres for the protection and welfare of animals". Ministers in general agreed that information about animal welfare in livestock production could enable consumers to make informed purchasing decisions and help EU farmers to obtain the desired recompense for their efforts. At the same time, ministers made it clear that any welfare information system would have to be simple and easy to understand, as well as in line with the rules of the WTO. Many ministers highlighted also the need to avoid an increase of production costs as well as of the administrative and control burden. They also stressed the need to evaluate how to cover imported products.
