    Goals / Remit

    EFFAB represents Animal Breeders and research in the animal breeding and reproduction sector at the EU level and in other international fora. Our membership covers ruminants, pigs, poultry, fish, shellfish, and insects breeding. Animal breeding is at the start of animal farming systems. Therefore plays an essential role of increasing the sustainability of food systems. As an effort of showing their commitment to sustainable and responsible breeding, EFFAB members sign Code EFABAR, is a voluntary code of good practice in support of responsible farm animal breeding. Code EFABAR is built around 6 pillars, recognizing the essential role that breeders play in ensuring the health and welfare of animals in a sustainable and responsible way.

    We have strong interest in EU policy related to: European Green Deal and Farm to Fork Strategy, Animal health and welfare, New genomiques techniques and other technologies, genetic diversity, and sustainability and other issues related to animal breeding and farming.

  • Meetings


    2 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
