The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a contract of $132,400 to FAI Farms to support events promoting poultry welfare and cage-free egg production in China. The events include a summit for food companies and producers, a poultry welfare conference in partnership with the China Animal Health and Food Safety Innovation Alliance, and a technical seminar promoting cage-free production.

This follows our April 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we do not typically publish pages for contractor agreements, we chose to write about this funding because we view it as conceptually similar to an ordinary grant, despite its structure as a contract due to the recipient’s organizational form.
