Welfare

Animal welfare is at the heart of our business. All pork used by Woodall's is selectively sourced using only British Outdoor Bred pigs. These pigs are born outdoors and after weaning are moved inside to straw bedded housing.

In 2017, we were delighted to be awarded the prestigious Good Pig Award by the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards. Hosted by Compassion in World Farming, they are the highest international accolades in farm animal welfare. This win is clear recognition of the care we take to produce high quality meat.

Since 2012, the Good Pig Award has recognised companies that use of have committed to use (within five years) higher welfare systems for sows and pigs. To date more than 3.7 million are set to benefit each year from the award winners' policies.

In addition to this, we have also achieved BBFAW Tier 1 status in recognition for the work we have done with our farm supply chain within the UK. Tier 1 demonstrates 'leadership' in animal welfare and we are one of only 5 global companies to be rated in this category.
