The PigCare™ audit
The annual audit covers the whole farm. The audit covers:
The auditor assesses the farm and pigs according to the PigCare™ standards which are cross-referenced to the Animal Welfare (Pigs) Code of Welfare 2010. Only pork from PigCare™ accredited farms can be labelled with the 100% NZ Pork PigCare™ labels.
How the PigCare™ audit works
The farm is assessed against each PigCare™ standard and is given one of the following results:
The auditor’s report (including any CARs) is sent to QCONZ. A copy of the report is sent back to the farmer and auditor, and is attached to the audit record. The wholesaler is notified of the status of the farm.
If the farm requires corrective action or fails an audit, it is required to fix the issues, provide evidence or be re-audited to ensure it now meets the standard.
