About us

About NZ Pork

Established in 1982, we are the statutory industry board that works to support New Zealand pork producers and farmers. We aim to build a sustainable future that ensures high standards of farming and animal welfare for New Zealand pigs.

We do the things that our producers and farmers can’t do on their own – benefitting the entire industry. This includes such things as marketing, communications, research and development, policy and advocacy.

We care about our pig farmers and their animals, and believe you should too. If you would like to learn more about us and the work we do, please visit www.nzpork.co.nz

PigCare™ – New Zealand Pork

You have a choice when you buy 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.
