Animals as Food: The Legal Treatment of Animals in Contemporary Agribusiness and Factory Farming
The legal, moral and ethical issues surrounding animals in contemporary food production and distribution are the focus of this year’s Center for Animal Law’s annual fall symposium.
Over the past several years this topic has received significant attention because of books such as “Fast Food Nation” and “Eating Animals,” documentaries like “Food, Inc.” and “Forks Over Knives,” and the release of undercover footage depicting modern slaughterhouse conditions. At the same time, consumer interest about where food comes from and the value of organic eating and non-meat diets is at an all-time high.
