The requirements included in these certifications, which are voluntary, are subject to an auditing process that ensures the consumer that the animal has received the necessary care for its well-being at all stages of production, with ethical and sustainable practices.

The company expresses its clear commitment and that of its farmers to good management of pigs and livestock and in animal welfare practices, health and biosafety, traceability and sustainability, ensuring the use of good practices throughout the food chain and maximum transparency to the consumer.
