MICA Monitor de Iniciativas Corporativas por los Animales

What is MICA?

Monitor de Iniciativas Corporativas por los Animales (MICA) analyzes the animal welfare performance of Latin America’s most influential food and hospitality companies. We focused on laying hen confinement across food industry segments in Latin America, ranking them according to their stance and progress on this matter.

In addition to numerous animal welfare deficiencies, conditions in cage production systems affect other relevant issues, such as public health, environmental degradation, and human rights violations. Animal welfare policies can drive strategies to meet the sustainable development goals adopted by the United Nations.

Companies must start making considerable progress on their cage-free transitions and publicly report this progress annually to show consumers and stakeholders transparency in their operations, as well as accountability in terms of social responsibility.
