This Special Issue will focus on the role of stakeholders in supporting higher animal welfare standards in animal agriculture. From policy makers to producers to food business operators and consumers, all have a responsibility regarding the animal welfare standards in food animal production. What progress has been made since the European Commission ‘Everyone is Responsible’ approach in 2010 (https://youtu.be/RsRqvK5sAbs)? For this issue we are interested in exploring examples of positive change, from the diversity of the stakeholder community.
