Farm Assurance and Pig Welfare

We work to unite our entire supply chain – from farmers to producers and customers – with the same vision. We also ensure farmers work to the Winterbotham Darby pig standard, resulting in a best practice approach towards European animal welfare and farm assurance.

Our timeline shows how we‘ve launched farm assurance and pig welfare schemes across Europe since 1999. Many of these are a first in continental Europe ahead of EU legislation changes that didn’t become standard until 2013.

European Farm Partnership

Underpinning animal welfare development has been our European Farm Partnership scheme. This has been the driving force in delivering significant advances in farm animal welfare. Uniquely it brings together farmers and partners to share knowledge, learning and the latest industry technology and developments.
