INTERPORC presents the reality of the pig sector to 200 children in Segovia
In the event, in which pig farmers from the province also participated, the children were able to learn about the modern pig production system and its high standards of animal welfare and biosecurity, which guarantee the production of tasty and nutritious food with the maximum food safety.
The children have discovered, among other things, "the nutritional properties of the meat and products of the white layer pig, as well as the reality of the sector and its economic relevance for the rural environment, mainly in areas like theirs, Segovia, where it is its main economic sector", has detailed Daniel de Miguel, deputy director of the Interprofessional.
During the conference, topics were also addressed in which the white-coated pig sector stands out for its commitment and results, such as the circular economy; the triple economic, social and environmental sustainability; animal health and welfare or biosafety.
For De Miguel, the experience "has been very gratifying and we have been surprised by the great interest and enthusiasm for learning that the boys and girls have shown". Although, he has recognized that some issues could be "a bit complicated, they have not stopped asking questions and are interested in knowing even more details to understand everything".
A varied and balanced diet is one of the fundamental pillars for children to grow up healthy and strong, and maintain healthy lifestyle habits throughout their lives, which is why INTERPORC carries out numerous actions like this.
Likewise, and in line with these actions, the Interprofessional also carries out numerous healthy cooking workshops aimed at adults and children and collaborates in research for the development of meat products adapted to the nutritional recommendations that ensure the health of consumers, among other initiatives.
