GeTie

The abbreviation stands for the German “Gemeinschaftsleistung Tierwohl“ which means „Joint effort for animal welfare”. The ongoing discussions about improving animal welfare often forget about the investments that are necessary along the whole production chain of products of animal origin to meet the requirements for more welfare. Many do their best to create best conditions for their animals which – in the end – improves the quality of a product. Consumers often do not value those efforts and call for low prices that retailers seek to offer.

Intention

Pig farms will be included into the EU-funded project in North Rhine-Westphalia from the beginning: They are the ones to define which factors shall be measured to create a catalog of facts for animal welfare. Along the whole meat-production chain these specific criteria shall be measured to get a clue of the degree of effort for animal welfare. This leads to transparency for the different steps of the production chain and reaches the consumers in the end. The transparency shall also contribute to a fair pricing that values investments and efforts made.

Participants

Seven pig farms will be part of the project. EQAsce will be the lead-partner who coordinates the different parts of the project. The Rheinische Erzeugerring and the enterprises ChainPoint and Veravis support the programming of a web-platform where animal welfare data is saved and made available.

Duration

The project runs from February 2020 until January 2022.
