The European Broiler Chicken Initiative originates from a coalition of around 30 animal welfare and animal rights organisations with the essential aim of improving the keeping of broiler chickens. In doing so, important topics such as stocking density, limiting overbreeding, light and employment material are addressed.
As Studierendenwerk Freiburg, we support this initiative and commit to implementing the requirements of the European Broiler Chicken Initiative (https://masthuhn-initiative.de) for 100% of (purchased) chicken meat by 2026 at the latest. We publish annual reports on the progress of implementation and ensure compliance with the standards through independent audits.
Until meat is available that meets all criteria of the European Broiler Chicken Initiative, Studierendenwerk Freiburg will use similar offers such as the entry level of an animal welfare level of the German Animal Welfare Association and gradually increase their share in the assortment.
We are continuously expanding our range of vegetarian and vegan meals. We are continuously raising the animal welfare standards for the meat dishes.
