Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €193,000 ($237,043 at the time of conversion) over two years to the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology to support the development of welfare certification standards for sea bass and sea bream farms in Spain. The standards will be adopted by WelfairTM, Spain’s largest farm animal welfare certifier.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
