INTERPORC highlights the commitment of the Spanish pig sector


Cefusa, a livestock company of the Fuertes Group, has renewed the voluntary 'B+ Animal Welfare Commitment' seal for white-coated pigs. This certification, which was promoted by the Interprofessional of the White Coated Pig (INTERPORC) and is endorsed by a Scientific Committee of experts in animal welfare, guarantees good practices in animal welfare, food safety, animal management, health and biosecurity.

INTERPORC highlights the commitment of the Spanish pig sector

The INTERPORC Animal Welfare Spain (IAWS) certification and Technical Regulations were created in 2019, and since then INTERPORC has shown satisfaction "for the trust that all companies continue to place in this certification. Without a doubt, it is the best demonstration that the voluntary B+ Animal Welfare Commitment seal is an incentive for companies that want to work with excellence".

The Interprofessional has also recalled that "the seal guarantees that the animals on Spanish pig farms have the five freedoms established by the World Organization for Animal Health (WHO), to describe as animal well-being the physical and mental state of an animal in relation to the conditions in which he lives."

A guarantee that has led large distribution companies to support and accept the seal, so today consumers have at their disposal pork meat certified in animal welfare with the B+ Animal Welfare Commitment seal in prominent chains.

'B+ Animal Welfare Commitment' has placed Spain at the global forefront in good practices in animal welfare since its INTERPORC Animal Welfare Spain (IAWS) Technical Regulations are even more demanding than the Spanish and European regulations themselves.

Furthermore, to guarantee the transparency of all processes, verification of compliance is carried out by certifiers accredited by the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC), which in turn will supervise the work of the companies through its demanding evaluation process.

Currently, more than 163 operators and more than 7,700 farms, which account for more than 60% of pig production, have been certified.
