Petition Demand clear labeling of beef to differentiate grass-fed beef from factory farmed beef
Factory farming of cattle in feed-lots is widely used in North America. It produces inferior meat, raises questions of animal welfare and has negative impacts on world food production and the environment.
Feed-lot systems are rare in Europe but are starting to make some impact.
Consumers need to be able to identify such beef in the supermarket in order to make informed decisions.
Demand adequate food labeling measures to make this possible.
