Farm Animal Welfare
Excellence in animal welfare
Here at Tulip, we consider excellence in farm animal welfare to be a key area of importance for our business. Our dedicated Agriculture & Welfare Supply Chain Team works closely with both the industry and our customers to ensure that high welfare standards are not only implemented but also consistently maintained.
We respect animals in our care by:
Ensuring all the pigs that we process from our own supply chain are raised to the highest level of farm animal welfare standards in commercial pig farming. All pigs produced within our own farming division are RSPCA Assured.
Sourcing from suppliers in the wider supply chain that are committed to independent higher welfare standards. All pigs supplied to Tulip UK are either Red Tractor or RSPCA Farm Assured.
Helping to drive industry improvements in animal welfare, through our representation on industry bodies, councils and working groups including: AHDB board, BMPA, PHWC (Pig Health & Welfare Council), NPA, RSCPA Technical Committee, Red Tractor, PVS (Pig Veterinary Society), BPHS (British Pig Health Scheme).
Being actively involved in and supporting numerous initiatives to improve animal welfare. Current projects are focussed on improving pig lairages at farm and processing facilities, freedom farrowing initiatives and optimum lighting levels for best pig wellbeing.
