Swiss reject initiative to ban factory farming

27 September, 2022

Swiss citizens have comprehensively turned down an initiative to ban intensive livestock farming and to boost animal welfare rules. Final results showed some 63% of voters said no to the “factory farming” initiative. Canton Basel City was the only of the 26 regions to approve the idea. The government recommended against the proposal, saying such changes would breach trade accords, increase investment and operating costs, and boost food prices.
