The Greek Presidency of the European Union and Compassion in World Farming

Compassion was founded in 1967 by a British dairy farmer who became horrified by the development of factory farming. Today we campaign peacefully to end all unsustainable factory farming practices. Our passion is supported by hard evidence and fact. This underpins all our campaigns and makes us the leading experts in our field.
