Food Safety

Providing safe, nutritious food is our most important responsibility. It’s a complex undertaking that involves everyone from caregivers and veterinarians to those who transport pigs to market. Today’s pig farms use a variety of technologies and techniques to ensure pork is safe to eat.

We are committed to:

  • Using management practices that are consistent with food safety.
  • Managing the health of herds.
  • Using technologies that minimize food safety threats.

How We Ensure Food Safety

Producing safe food requires education and training for anyone who comes in contact with pigs. We have a dedicated set of practices in place to guarantee pigs are handled properly.
