“The experience of the pig sector in animal welfare has allowed it to anticipate the demands of administrations and consumers”

The professionals of the pig sector, Alberto Herranz has explained, the sector “has been the first to understand animal welfare as an investment and not as a threat or added cost”. Not surprisingly, “the higher quality of life of the animals translates into a higher quality of the products that reach the consumer”. This was stated by Alberto Herranz, director of the Interprofessional del Pork de Capa Blanca (INTERPORC), during his speech, yesterday afternoon, at the online technical conference organized by FIGAN under the title “Intensive livestock farming; challenges and challenges at the global, 2021-2025 “.

The director of INTERPORC has been convinced that this work carried out by the sector in the area of ​​animal welfare, “which has made our country a world benchmark, has also contributed to giving a boost to the political and social agenda in this matter” , which shows the fact that in the European Union animal welfare labels are on the table that improve and expand current regulatory requirements.
