THE ETHICAL PACT – Animal Welfare and environment respect
Crossing every phase of the production, and binding the whole supply chain, the ‘ethic pact’ of PRO SUS can be summed up in few, explicit and essential points:
• Animal welfare: all the breeders (both associated and not) pay great attention to the Animal Welfare Regulations, ensuring to the pigs respectful and decent farming conditions; also the use of veterinary drugs is made consciously and responsibly. The stables must be sustainable, never oversized about the pigs’ number and with non-invasive environmental impact.
• Transports: efficiently planned, with the respect of the indications about animal transporting, requested by the above-mentioned Animal Welfare Regulations.
• Slaughtering: spaces and procedures that best fits to receive, set in stalls and manage the animals’ stay from their arriving to the slaughtering. Everything above the National Healthcare Service supervision.
• Environmental impact: aware of being set on an agricultural context, PRO SUS has always paid a great attention to the environment. Attention that, for example, has taken the shape of the Biogas Plant (exploiting the by-products from the slaughtering activity), that produces energy and hot water for the slaughterhouse.
