Under controlled conditions
In Denmark, Sweden and Germany, our control process for animal welfare with three steps:
- Self-checks, which are carried out by specially trained farm and abattoir staff.
- Veterinary controls with state employed veterinarians monitoring the entire process from rearing of the animals at the farms to inspections of individual animals at the abattoir.
- And unannounced external controls performed by relevant authorities and customers. The controls include mortality, proper use of hospital pens for animals and the use of medicines, which are monitored closely at the farms and are always subject to approval by the affiliated veterinarians.
