In recent years, egg production has been in the spotlight for animal welfare issues. While the number of European farms with free-range hens has increased, in Spain, 93 percent of laying hens are still caged. This also contributes to the industry's environmental burden. In the rest of the EU, the figure is much lower (40 percent) due to a growing concern for animal welfare. A team of Spanish scientists has reported the environmental cost of egg production in a typical farm in Spain. The scientists of the University of Oviedo analyzed the effect of intensive egg production on 18 environmental categories, among which are ozone depletion, climate change, terrestrial acidification, human toxicity and land occupation, among others.

The UK could impose a ban on the export of live animals for slaughter after Brexit, according to Michael Gove. The environment secretary has launched a consultation into a ban and called on industry experts and campaigners to submit evidence. The consultation will also look at the possibility of introducing higher welfare standards for the transportation of live animals. Current rules of the European single market currently stop the UK from preventing the export of live animals for slaughter. Last year up to 20,000 live sheep, but no cattle, were exported to Europe. Live exports count for only a small proportion of the UK’s £2.4bn trade in meat and livestock products with the EU. Launching the consultation, Gove said the UK already had some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world but the government was committed to a manifesto promise to improve them further. “All animals deserve to get the respect and care they deserve at every stage of their lives,” he said.

A new report by British company Compare the Market, Limited—with support from Gersham College—found that seven percent of United Kingdom residents, which amounts to 3.5 million individuals, now consider themselves vegan, with 14 percent (seven million people) identifying as vegetarian. The new report focused on changes that UK residents have made—particularly in relation to dietary habits and modes of transportation—in an effort to be more environmentally conscious. When presented with the choice between not eating meat and not being able to drive, the report found that nearly half of the population chose the former. “From farm to fork and beyond, food accounts for about 20 percent of all of our greenhouse gas emissions,” Gersham College Professor Carolyn Roberts said.
