Compassion in World Farming International was founded in 1967 in England by Peter Roberts, a British farmer who became horrified by the development of intensive factory farming. Over 50 years ago, Peter decided to make a difference and take a stand against this farming system. In his lifetime, Peter saw the demise of barren battery cages, veal crates and gestation crates in the UK, and in Europe achieved recognition that animals are sentient beings.
Compassion in World Farming is the leading international farm animal welfare charity, campaigning to improve the lives of millions of farm animals through advocacy, lobbying for legislative change, and positive engagement with the global food industry.

Our primary animal focus is the removal of cages and improving the welfare of meat chickens and fish produced in aquaculture. In addition, we aim to drive corporate meat, fish, dairy and egg reduction strategies and targets in line with planetary health requirements, via our newly launched Rethinking Food workstream.
