Sow friendly pork

06 June 2017

We have achieved our commitments to improve the welfare of pigs in our supply chain.

Following extensive work with our pork suppliers, since November 2016, all fresh pork sold under the PnP brand comes from farms were expectant sows stay in a gestation crate for a maximum of 8 weeks, then into group housing which allows them to move about in pens and socialise with other mother pigs. To protect the piglets the sow is then placed into a farrowing crate 1 week prior to birth until the piglets are weaned.

Since January 2017, all PnP branded processed pork products are also from sow friendly farms.

All farms are audited by independent third party veterinarians and our abattoirs, processing facilities, distribution facilities and Pick n Pay stores that take part in the PnP sow friendly programme are audited by SAMIC (South African Meat Industry Company) and follow up audits are undertaken where required, to ensure compliance.

Pick n Pay technologists follow up on the traceability audits when visiting facilities. Any facility or farm that fails the audit is suspended and corrective action must follow together with a re-audit before supply can commence again.
