Open Philanthropy recommended a contract of $600,000 over two years with FAI Farms to support cage-free certification work — in partnership with the China Chain Store and Franchise Association — and a summit promoting poultry welfare and cage-free egg production. The certification project’s aim is to develop a large-scale production and certification model for cage-free eggs in China, the world’s largest egg producer.

This follows our January 2020 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we typically do not publish pages for contractor agreements, we occasionally opt to do so.
