The FSA’s Animal Welfare team are aiming to coordinate a survey of industry stakeholders (November/December 2022) to better understand awareness levels around the Demonstration of Life protocol as well as reasons why uptake has been minimal.  This will help us to undertake further targeted activity with Defra and to better inform any stakeholder activity involving our Board members.
