The European pig farm welfare campaign abides by a variety of rules and different principles but it goes by one major creed– food safety. It’s easier said and planned than done. There are numerous issues and challenges. But with proper planning and comprehensive details, it’s easier to achieve this. This specific campaign is what most businesses from Europe follow.
Residue-free products. Some people have complained about seeing specific residue and elements on the meat which doesn’t belong there. This can be harmful and risky for most individuals. In the name of food safety, this must be evaluated.
Animal welfare. The debate regarding animal rights has been one of the biggest issues for this industry. But since it’s a commodity and need, the only thing they can offer is to practice responsible breeding and proper processes to ensure that it won’t cause any issues for the rest of the community.
Machine and system sanitation. When a pig is killed, machines usually take over the process. This makes everything efficient. From cleaning, cutting, to packing, machines are often used. Therefore, it’s important to ensure that all the machines being used are actually sanitized and maintained on a constant basis.
Controlled and well-managed production. Quality comes from making sure that each part of the process is monitored and done according to the right standards. Without these things, the whole process will surely collapse. And whatever assurance you have of high-quality products will be lost. Therefore, it’s necessary to monitor everything from start to finish and make use of proper traceability processes.
