Public Perception of Commercial Poultry Welfare: What are we doing? Is it enough? Does it matter?

PIC’s popular Science in the Pub sessions allow a broad range of stakeholders in the Ontario poultry industry to gather in an informal and lively atmosphere to discuss, debate and share different perspectives on timely topics and issues affecting the poultry industry.  Come out and share your perspective on issues that affects us all.

The topic for this year’s event is Public Perception of Commercial Poultry Welfare. Presentations and round-table discussions will address concerns the general public has regarding commercial poultry welfare, how consumers currently perceive animal welfare in the industry and what agriculture literacy groups are doing to promote public trust.
