The Mars Global Food Safety Center (GFSC) is committed to ensuring safe food for all through scientific research, capability building and collaboration. The Mars GFSC are committed to helping ensure high standards of welfare for pets and animals which is demonstrated through our scientific research on the prevention and control of food-borne pathogens in raw materials and during food production. However, it is not just research, our Associates also use their enthusiasm to participate in public welfare activities through the Mars Volunteer Program (MVP).

This year, the GFSC collaborated with Mars Pet Nutrition and Capital Animal Welfare Association (CAWA), to participate in activities designed to generate public benefit.


On September 16, the Mars volunteers visited the CAWA in Beijing, which hosts a cattery and kennel to protect injured cats and dogs. During the visit, the volunteers met with like-minded people who are just as enthusiastic as they are on animal welfare. Lots of volunteers come to the center regularly to support and help stray animals to find a warm home. During the interaction with the dogs, they introduced the selection criteria for emotional support animals and its training process. The trainers of the center have cultivated groups of qualified healing dogs and launched them in nursing home and special school to warm many lonely hearts. After that, the teachers of the center gave the Associates an overview of pet behavior, shelter and the adoption process for stray animals to provide a complete knowledge base for future engagement in long-term volunteer activities related to animal care and rescue.

The GFSC volunteers will continue attend the public benefit activities in Beijing. Together with all Mars segments helping find warm homes for the animals.

Working together to live on our purpose: A better world for pets.
