The South-Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety hired Eyes on Animals to give three of their officials a two-day training course on the European legislation protecting animals on the farm, during transport and during slaughter. The training course was held at our office in Amsterdam. The South-Korean Ministry is preparing guidelines for industry stakeholders and official inspectors in order to improve the welfare of animals in South Korea. We showed many photos and videos of bad and good practices and also explained the on-going loopholes in our legislation. They were attentive listeners and also asked many questions. South Korea is an interesting country because animal-welfare is new but a topic that is gaining momentum. With more and more South Koreans having dogs as pets, the dog meat industry there is decreasing. With social media, concern about other animal species is also growing.
