Danish Food Minister Mette Gjerskov has tasked the country’s Food & Drug Administration (Fødevarestyrelsen) with examining the prevalence of MRSA in Danish pigs.

Local campaigns/organisations to support
Anima was founded in 2000 as an organization that works to reduce animal suffering with a focus on animals in industrial agriculture and the fur industry.
We work for increased welfare through political influence, both nationally and internationally, providing information and practical help for animals in need.
For us, ecology is not just a concept that farmers and businesses should live up to because the demand is there. It is rather a matter of opinion as to how production should be done. The Association believes that organic farming and food production gives a cleaner environment, better animal welfare in agriculture and healthier foods. Therefore, the terms of the organic farmers and consumers be better. Ecological Association works including to strengthen research in organic farming, development of new food products and consumer access to organic food in the shops.

The project was completed in order to estimate the state of Danish organic agricultural production as to climate impact and the methods that will make organic production even more climate friendly.
