- To support campaigning to reduce the use of battery cages and gestation crates in Brazil.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $200,000 over two years to Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal (FNPDA) for campaigning to reduce the use of battery cages for layer hens and gestation crates for pigs in Brazil.
FNPDA has played a role in securing crate-free pledges from Brazil’s four largest pork producers and cage-free pledges from 26 Brazilian food companies, and intends to use these funds to continue its corporate campaigns, to start a tracker of corporate implementation of cage-free pledges, and to host a conference with egg producers, food companies, scientists, and activists to discuss implementation.
This is a renewal of Open Philanthropy's previous support and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
