In the U.S., our processing plants comply with USDA regulations, which include the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act, the Humane Slaughter of Livestock Act and the Food Safety and Inspection Service Directive on the Humane Handling and Slaughter of Livestock.
In Canada, our processing plants comply to the Canada’s Health of Animal Regulations and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s requirements outlined in the Safe Food for Canadians regulations.
Each of our North American processing plants have government employed veterinarians and inspection staff, and they, along with our PAACO-certified auditors and trained employees, oversee the on-site health, quality and handling of the animals we process. Government personnel audit our processes, documentation and training records to ensure compliance.
