Common Swine Industry Audit - Pork Checkoff

Common Swine Industry Audit

The overarching goal of the common audit process is to provide consumers greater assurance of the care taken by farmers and pork processors to improve animal wellbeing and food safety.

To help avoid duplicative, costly and inefficient audit programs that are commonplace in some countries, this tool is designed to:

  • Meet individual company and customer needs
  • Be focused on outcome-based criteria that measure and improve animal welfare
  • Provide clarity to producers about audit standards and expectations
  • Minimize duplication and prevent over-sampling
  • Ensure greater integrity of the audit process through consistent application
  • Provide an objective, science-based platform to facilitate continuous improvement in animal care
