Federal agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner (CDU) is one of the Latter. The nationwide output restrictions were not yet in force, as they had purchases her first major appearance: the end with the hamster, she appealed to the agitated Nation.

The task that is now before the forty-seven-year-olds, is much more difficult: Together with the Federal Minister of labour, Hubertus Heil (SPD) is to reform the meat industry – an industry that has proved in the past decades as a very resistant to change.

the animal is now tax well?

After healing for the well-being of employees quickly, the solution presented was the prohibition of contracts for work – Klöckner more time. This Friday she wants to present with the competent land Ministers of the interior of North Rhine-Westphalia and lower Saxony, a bundle of measures for the Welfare of the animals.

the beginning of the year showed Klöckner still cautious with regard to a possible animal welfare charge. In light of the events in the case of Tönnies & co. this could come faster than thought. In addition to the consumers you want to take advantage of the trade more. Chicken thighs for 20 cents per 100 grams, are indecent, finds Klöckner.

Well possible, that in the last meters of the Grand coalition is also their national animal welfare label comes. In theory, this is far from finished. Practically, it fails so far to the fact that the SPD wants to make the use mandatory, Klöckner this rejects but with reference to EU law.

in other areas, the Minister relies on voluntary solutions, for example when it comes to the sugar content in ready meals, or the introduction of a traffic light system. You kusche before the industry, before throwing consumer associations Klöckner, therefore, again and again. And feel when you have corporations such as Nestlé praises publicly, or, as happened recently in a cooking show appearance, which is sponsored by the supermarket chain Kaufland.
