Pig Farmers

QS certified farmers who keep pigs ensure quality assurance in the shed: the animals are conscientiously looked after and kept in optimal conditions. In addition, the livestock farmers ensure a high level of company hygiene and the use of certified feed.

QS supports the pig farmers in this process and has compiled all important requirements in guidelines, notes and checklists for self-assessment - practice-oriented and in a clear manner. Qualified, neutral auditors regularly and independently check whether the requirements are being met.

The fact that the demand for QS pork is continuously high speaks for participating in the QS scheme: the livestock farmers have an advantage in marketing. In addition, the QS audits are a preparation for official inspections such as sectoral legislation or cross compliance checks.

There is a mutual audit recognition between the Belgian standard BePork and QS. Pig farms, as well as slaughter and deboning companies that have been successfully certified according to BePork, can deliver live pigs or pork to the QS scheme.
