Miguel Vergara, first beef producer to receive the AENOR Animal Welfare Seal in its entire chain

17/04/2018

This certification, developed in conjunction with IRTA, is in line with the European Welfare Quality® standard.

• The scope of the certificate includes the entire productive cycle: from the farming of the livestock to slaughtering and through to packaging and labelling of the end product, ensuring the animal's welfare and the traceability of Miguel Vergara meats.

• To obtain the certificate, farms and slaughterhouses must comply with 12 requirements that ensure the welfare of the beef cattle: from the absence of pain caused by handling, injuries or illness; to ensuring ease of movement and appropriate behaviour.

• This certification is the only one currently issued in Spain that can guarantee the Welfare Quality ® requirements established, guaranteeing an in-depth audit in all phases of production and the maximum information and transparency for the consumer.
