Broiler chicken initiative: better conditions for broiler chickens

We support the European Broiler Chicken Initiative

The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe will implement the the requirements of the European Broiler Chicken Initiative for 100 percent of the chicken meat purchased for Europe by 2026 at the latest. The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe will publishe annual reports on the progress of implementation and has independent controls to ensure compliance with the standards.

The European Broiler Chicken Initiative comes from an association of around 30 animal welfare organizations with the main aim of improving the keeping of broiler chickens. Important animal welfare aspects such as a lower stocking density, the restriction of overbreeding and minimum standards for light and activity material are implemented.
