AssureWel International

AssureWel International is an International group of Farm Assurance Schemes and associated organisations that have come together to share common goals and aspirations with relation to the use of Welfare Outcome Assessment.

It is a non-competitive, inclusive and collaborative group, that focus on certification schemes and programmes with the main emphasis being to influence one another business to business plus inform NGO’s and Government.

By sharing best practice we want to:

  • Improve welfare outcomes & encourage provision of resource opportunities
  • Maximise impact & promote the value of welfare certification
