The major schemes currently recognized are:
- Livestock Welfare:
Does your facility have a livestock welfare policy that meets government regulations & customer requirements?
Is your staff trained properly on livestock welfare procedures?
Don't wait for an audit to find out your facility falls short on livestock welfare.
We can provide:
