FACT is a research-driven organization, beginning new work with an extensive
review of the scientific literature. We have historically conducted our own
research on farms to develop appropriate husbandry systems and to measure their
impact on food safety.
FACT staff members advocate in favor of policies that improve farm animal
welfare and protect the public from the unhealthy consequences of industrialized
agriculture. We work at the national level with Congress, the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and at the
international level with Codex Alimentarius.
FACT helps consumers make informed food choices by promoting humanely produced
meat, milk, and eggs. We also seek to cultivate compassion for farm animals
among young people through our humane education efforts.
