Animal Protein

The Improvement

A shift away from the worst factory farming cruelties in Asia would spare tens of billions of animals each year from acute misery while improving food safety and reducing pandemic risk.

Lever helps food companies eliminate the worst cruelties from their supply chains, with a primary focus on ending the caged confinement of laying hens and a secondary focus on welfare improvements for fish, chickens, cows and pigs. Lever also works with producers to help them remove cages from farms and new constructions.
