Carrefour wants CCTV in all of its slaughterhouses

The company said that it also launched an independent audit of all abattoirs that supply products under its Carrefour, Carrefour Bio and Reflets de France brands, as well as products for its Carrefour Quality Lines for compliance with the Animal Protection reference framework created by the Œuvre d’assistance aux Bêtes d’Abattoirs (an organisation founded to ensure animal welfare in slaughterhouses).

Carrefour plans to conduct 84 audit before the end of 2019 and announced that it will use the terms of reference drawn up by the OABA based on the Animal Protection reference framework.

The association will also train auditors from Bureau Veritas, the fully independent inspection and certification body, which will be carrying out checks throughout 2019.

To implement this project, Carrefour has signed a tripartite agreement with the OABA and Bureau Veritas which will be conducting the audits.
