Treating animals well is the key to profitable and responsible production. Animal health and good output primarily depend on the professionalism of producers, good care of animals, systematic feeding and sound management of conditions. Atria ensures that animals are treated well in its chain by means of quality requirements included in its production contracts and the terms and conditions of animal purchases and sales. Atria has prepared production handbooks on each production species to assist producers; these handbooks provide clear guidance on the breeding, feeding, living conditions and health care of animals.
Atria’s contract producers are required to comply with the instructions in the handbooks, and their operations are monitored through veterinary checks at intervals of 1–12 months, depending on the type of farm.
