Welfare

Caring for every animal

(including PigCare and FP PigCare Plus Program)

Animal welfare is something we care deeply about and in addition to supporting the industry PigCare program, we have proactive engagement with our farmers under the Freshpork PigCare Plus program. When we are made aware of welfare issues, we work with the farmer to address these issues as a matter of urgency.

The New Zealand commercial pig industry meets some of the most rigorous welfare demands in the world.  It is the only country in the world with a national welfare and presentation audit.

New Zealand has an “A” rank on the animal protection index from the World Animal Protection organisation.

PigCare is run by AssureQuality  and you can see more information about the PicCare program on the NZ Pork website
