Factory farming inflicts suffering on approximately one billion land animals in the UK every year, all to create cheap meat, dairy and eggs. Factory farms provide ideal conditions for the spread and mutation of viruses. A OnePoll survey published earlier this year revealed some 85 per cent of Britons support an immediate ban on intensive farming methods.

Join some of Britain’s top experts to explore how we can protect animals and human health in the 2020s and beyond.
