This project revolves around the WelFur initiative, and the use of this, at European minkfarms. The
WelFur initiative was initiated by Fur Europe, an umbrella organization with responsibility of all
production of fur in Europe, to secure a higher welfare standard in fur, and to supply the welfare
asking market. Throughout the project, there will be several interviews, in which the farmers tell
about the difficulties and positivity of the implementation of the WelFur initiative, and how they
will increase the standard of the farms to comply with the criterial minimum. Furthermore, the prject
describes the trouble of the lithuanian farmers, when it comes to coping with the criteria. The
reasoning behind this is that the law regulation on animal welfare in Lithuania is different from
those in Denmark, as to why they are less motivated by the WelFur initiative, because there will be
some expenses for the individual farm to adapt to the criterias of WelFur. Furthermore, we have
interviewed the chairman of Fur Europe, John Papsø, to include the thoughts of the leading voice.
The initiative requires check-ups at the farm, which is performed by a non-accredited company
called Baltic Control. We have also had an interview with lead assessor Gorm Djurhuus, on how the
check-ups are as good as they possibly can be. All this to create this project, to give a full giving
picture of WelFur.
