All our employees who are in direct contact with our animals receive internal animal welfare training.

MORE INFORMATION
But how exactly do we put our animals’ wellbeing first and foremost? By following the principles of the five freedoms set out by the Farm Animal Welfare Council throughout our pigs’ entire life.
1 Freedom from hunger or thirst

By ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.

2 Freedom from physical stress and discomfort

By providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.

3 Freedom from pain, injury or disease

By prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.

4 Freedom to express normal behaviour

By providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.

5 Freedom from fear and distress

By ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

Grup d’Avinyó was awarded Welfair™ certification for its farms and abattoir.

2020

Every year Grup d’Avinyó makes further progress in increasing our animals’ wellbeing. In 2020 we invested more than €1.5 million on various aspects of animal welfare.

WE PROVIDE NATURAL SPACES FOR SOWS AND PIGLETS

Sows and piglets are healthiest and happiest when they are free to interact naturally. That’s why we invested €1 million in improving spaces for sows and piglets on our RBS pig farm to make them more comfortable and to foster the animals’ natural instincts.

WE STIMULATE THEIR ANIMAL INSTINCTS WITH DYNAMIC SPACES

We want our pigs to be able to behave as naturally as possible to ensure they have the greatest wellbeing. In addition to taking care of them in properly equipped facilities, we have also created dynamic spaces with materials that make for a more stimulating experience, where they can play, explore, rummage and chomp. These ever-changing, dynamic materials keep them interested and stimulate exploratory behaviour.

WE TRAIN OUR TEAM IN ANIMAL WELLBEING

All our employees who are in direct contact with our animals receive internal animal welfare training to ensure our pigs are raised under the very best living conditions.

WE ENSURE THEY ARE TRANSPORTED IN COMFORT

We believe that our animals’ wellbeing extends beyond our farms. Thanks to our strict transport protocols, we can guarantee their quality of life right up until their final moments, as endorsed by our Welfair™ seal of approval.

WE WORK CLOSELY WITH RENOWNED UNIVERSITIES

Grup d’Avinyó constantly strives to improve our animals’ wellbeing and our sustainable production systems. We have signed a number of research agreements with renowned universities, including the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

2019

Grup d’Avinyó was awarded Welfair™ certification for its farms and abattoir. Every day we strive to improve our animals’ wellbeing in every way possible.
