During the last Council of Ministers of Agriculture, the Danish delegation briefed the ministers about the outcome of the conference “Improving pig welfare – what are the ways forward?” which was held on 29-30 April 2015 in Copenhagen and about a position paper requesting a revision of directive 2008/120 laying down minimum standards for the protection of pigs.

The position paper was signed by the agricultural ministers of Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark attending the conference. It outlines issues regarding pig welfare on which those countries consider that progress needs to be made at a European level.

Some delegations supported the initiative but others noted that considering the high level of EU standards for pig welfare, equal treatment among EU and non EU producers should be ensured and priority to better enforcement of existing legislation should be given.
