Elliot Teperman joins me today to discuss the progress towards animal welfare in the food industry over the last ten years. He shares the move from caged-hens to cage-free farming and how it impacted various producers. He describes the impending risk of antimicrobial resistance in the future and how we can avoid it. Elliot also explains what he thinks will be the next big change in the food industry for animal welfare.
