Joel Haggard:大会为更多了解中国的动物福利状况奠定基础 发布时间:2017-11-01

2017年10月12日,在世界农场动物福利大会中,美国肉类出口协会亚太区高级副总裁何嘉德先生接受了采访,分享了他的参会感想。
 

 
“我们非常高兴参与此次大会。我们想了解更多在中国有关动物福利问题方面的认识,并分享我们在美国的经验。中国是我们的猪肉产品的主要出口市场之一,所以我们有义务去了解我们在中国的客户。这为我们了解这里的动物福利发展方向奠定基础,也可帮我们更多地了解动物福利问题对于中国的消费者的重要程度。”

据何嘉德先生说,提高动物福利意味着更快乐的动物,这将转化为更高的产品质量和生产效率、更安全的产品及工作场所。至于在美国的猪福利情况,虽然美国政府并无强制规定的动物福利标准,猪肉生产者组织--国家猪肉委员会实施了一项自愿的并可实施认证的项目以确保农场的猪肉安全,其中包括动物福利因素,如促进动物健康和正确地处置动物。这项计划已经存在了20年,无论大小生产者,参与率都很高。

The First Foundation for More Understanding of Animal Welfare in China

An interview with Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific Region of U.S. Meat Export Federation, Mr. Joel Haggard

“We are very happy to be at this conference. We want to understand more about the awareness of animal welfare issues in China and share our experiences in the United States. China is one of our big export markets for pork products, so we have an obligation to understand our customers in China. It’s just to lay the first foundation for understanding more in terms of animal welfare orient here, but also for us to understand more about how important this issue is to consumers in China.”

According to Mr. Joel Haggard, improving animal welfare means a happier animal, which will translate into higher product quality, greater production efficiency, safer product and safer workplace. In terms of the overall swine welfare in the United States, though there is no mandated regulation of animal welfare standards by the US government, a producers’ organization - National Pork Board has utilized funding to implement a voluntary and certifiable program to ensure on-farm pork safety, which includes animal welfare component, such as promoting animal well-being and proper handling of animals. This program has been in existence for 20 years, and has a high-subscription rate by large and small producers.
