Mepham (1996) has proposed an ‘ethical matrix’ for the analysis of ethical issues relating to food production.

For the majority of society, those who are not directly involved with animals, the two most important principles of right action for animal welfare are: (1) recognition that the quality of animals’ lives is determined not just by those who work with them but by us all, since it is we who determine their value; and (2) demand for reliable welfare-based quality assurance and the recognition that this must be based on effective quality control.
