Animal Well-Being & Food Safety
Pork producers care deeply about the health and welfare of their animals. They have a moral obligation to provide for the well-being of their pigs and to raise them in a humane and compassionate manner. Healthy animals ensure safe food for consumers. There is nothing more important than ensuring a safe, nutritious food supply. The pork industry adopted its We Care program to demonstrate its commitment to responsible pork production.
Animal agriculture must continue to develop new methods to promote safe and humanely-produced products to meet the demands of foreign and domestic markets. NPPC advocates for science-based approaches to swine health and production and opposes legislation that would dictate on-farm production practices.
