Industry Standards and Guidelines
For some regions in which we operate, there are voluntary industry standards and guidelines that have been developed by the scientific committees of their respective organizations. These voluntary standards are species-specific and exceed government regulations.
Cargill has supported and adopted many of these industry standards. Often these standards are the foundation for third party audits as well as internal audits required within in our supply chain.
We ensure that we meet our policy commitments, in part, through internal and external audits. Although we do not publicly disclose our audit results, we are stringent about, and committed to, maintaining a high level of animal welfare performance, ensuring that we meet or exceed audit requirements.
