The 2014 edition of the Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare (BBFAW), a review of the world’s top global foods and their animal welfare policies, has found that animal welfare in the U.S. is “immature”.

The benchmark is aimed mainly at investors and ranks companies on their farm animal welfare management and reporting. The report is independently assembled and funded by leading animal welfare NGOs Compassion in World Farming and World Animal Protection. It also receives support from Coller Capital.

BBFAW ranks 80 companies altogether. Each of them is placed in a category that ranges from Tier 1 (top ranking companies), to Tier 6 (low ranking companies with very weak animal welfare policies).
