CODE OF PRACTICE

PIG PRODUCTION TERMS  Background

A number of terms relating to pig production methods are currently in use on retail packs and menus featuring pork and pork products. These include free range, outdoor bred and outdoor reared. There are accepted industry norms relating to these terms but there are not agreed, auditable definitions as there are, for example in the poultry sector. The Code of Practice therefore includes such definitions so that consumers can be fully informed when buying these products.
