ANIMAL WELFARE POLICY
At Breeders and Packers Uruguay S.A (BPU Meat), we commit ourselves to assuring the humane treatment of animals at every stage of their lives, even when being slaughtered. This requires to work closely with our producers, transporters and employees.
Our high technology and quality processes, operations and facilities -unload area, waiting pens, entrance tube and stunning boxes- were designed and established according to national and international policies of Animal Welfare and under the approval of subject-matter experts. This is documented and strictly controlled by the Animal Welfare Responsible and the highly qualified helpers.
The permanent training and awareness of our employees, cattle suppliers and transporters prove our proactive attitude and clear commitment to the assurance of humanitarian conditions for animal handling and slaughter. We strongly believe that good Animal Welfare practices reduce animal suffering and that, as a result, there is a positive effect on the quality of our products.
In order to protect this policy, BPU Meat is committed to respecting Animal Welfare rules and invites its employees, suppliers and collaborators to join the cause. This is only achievable when each and every part of the chain gets involved in it.
