Survey: Majority accepts higher meat prices for more animal welfare

According to their own statements, the majority of consumers in Germany are willing to pay higher prices for meat for better animal welfare. In a survey by the Yougov institute, 59 percent of those surveyed said so. 23 percent said they were not ready to do so. 17 percent did not provide any information.

Federal Minister of Agriculture Cem Özdemir wants to introduce new, black and white logos as mandatory meat labeling on packaging in supermarkets in 2023 and thus create more clarity about the conditions in the stables.

In order to support farmers on the way to more animal welfare - for example by converting barns - according to expert recommendations, higher VAT or a levy on animal products are under discussion. The traffic light coalition is still struggling to find a fundamentally reliable financial solution. A surcharge of 40 cents per kilogram of meat would be conceivable.
