Peoples expectations of quality are changing. Consumers not only want food to taste good, they want it to actually be good. Good for their health, good for animal welfare and good for the environment. They need to know that their food is produced without the use of drugs, that the animals farmed for meat were given humane care and that their needs were respected and met.
They feel that the pigs grown to provide us with pork should not just have to cope with their environment, they should thrive in it. Farming practices need to be sustainable, not just now, but looking into the future and sustainability is more than environmental issues, its also about acceptable farm practices.
How can Melanda Park Free Range meet such high expectations?
Our entire farm is managed biologically. We are committed to happy, stress free pigs and the care of our land and to show our commitment we have become certified through Humane Choice and undergo thorough inspection by australia's most respected independent auditing company Aus-Qual. The Humane Choice standard not only covers the environment and animal welfare, it covers your welfare also with stringent food safety requirements.
