Trusted Pork events 2018

Food safety is a top priority in Europe. It is therefore the intention of the European Union (EU) to ensure that all food produced in Europe is safe for consumers. EU legislation guarantees the safety of pork at every step of the production chain – from the farm to the table of the consumers. The highest standards of pig health and pig welfare contribute to protecting food safety and public health. In this way Europe builds a high level of consumer trust in pork and pork products.

This high level of consumer trust is strengthened by the introduction of the concept of full traceability that guarantees the tracking and tracing of any pork product through all stages of production, processing and distribution. Food Businesses Operators must make sure that all foodstuffs can be traced right through the food chain, from farm to table.

10 years of co-operation with SRS Personeel

Last week, directors Erik de Ruiter and John Snoep from SRS Personeel in Bergambacht, surprised us with a wonderful gift. Because of the 10 year anniversary of a very close and pleasant cooperation they handed a brass and copper artwork to our director Paul Wellink.
