100% New Zealand PorkPigCare Accredited

PigCare™ - How Do I Signup?

Why should I register for PigCare?

PigCare™ accreditation provides you with the assurance that you are providing for the welfare of the pigs you farm including meeting or exceeding New Zealand’s animal welfare standards. It entitles the pork you produce to be labelled with the 100% New Zealand pork, ham and bacon logos thus providing retailers and consumers with the assurance that the pork you produce has been farmed to high animal welfare standards.

How do I register my farm to become part of PigCare™?

To become part of the PigCare™ accreditation programme producers must:

  1. Register with QCONZ (registration form available below)

  2. Have an audit done.
