QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAMME

Quality and Animal Welfare

Animal welfare is a priority in our abattoirs, and for this reason all necessary measures are put in place to ensure it is respected: optimisation of transport and holding pen times, automated conveyance of animals to the CO2 stunning units, officially approved training for all personnel involved in animal handling and meticulous control of the entire procedure.
The company, furthermore, holds a certification in animal welfare, renewed every six months by an external company, which meets requirements even more stringent than in current legislation. In this way, an effective system is maintained to ensure animal welfare is respected throughout the process.
