Quality assured

High animal welfare standards

Low carbon footprint

You have a choice to buy New Zealand born and raised pork products at your supermarket or butcher.

Not all pork, ham and bacon products sold in New Zealand are grown locally. This means they don’t all meet the animal welfare standards of the PigCare™ programme.

When you buy pork, bacon and ham marked with the PigCare™ label, you can be sure that you are buying from New Zealand farmers who raise their animals with care.
