The term Outdoor used on its own will mean that the pork and pork products come from Outdoor Reared pigs that are kept outside, in fields until they are sent for processing. Minimum space allowances are generous although these are lower than for Free Range pigs.
3.5
In all cases it is allowed to house pigs for a very limited period of time in case of veterinary treatment, emergency and when directed or advised to do so by the relevant authorities (for example during an exotic disease outbreak).
3.6
Label imagery that features outdoor pig farming scenes will only be used on Free Range, Outdoor Bred, Outdoor Reared or Outdoor products.
