This badge, developed by the Institute for Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA) in collaboration with the NEIKER technology center, is the first Animal Welfare certificate that focuses on the observation and evaluation of animals and their behavior. The certificate has a protocol for bovine species, hens and chickens, swine, sheep, turkeys, rabbits and cordils raised for food production.
The WelfairTM certification guarantees to the consumer that the animals linked to the seal have lived and have been slaughtered under ethically responsible welfare conditions, in accordance with the protocols established in the European Welfare Quality and AWIN (Animal Welfare Indicators) projects.

Currently, around 25,000 farms throughout the State have the WelfairTM certification and the food categories in which we can currently find the WelfairTM seal extend to meat products; eggs and dairy products such as milk, smoothies, cheeses, butters, and yogurts. Products with this seal are found on the purchase shelves of more than 4,000 establishments distributed throughout the territory.
