Safe from animal diseases

A good disease status and first-class animal welfare are among the greatest assets of Finnish meat production. Healthy and well-kept animals are the foundation for efficient, economical and safe domestic food production.

Infectious animal diseases are systematically resisted in line with resistance programmes prepared in collaboration with Animal Welfare (ETT). Atria’s preventive health care work has been effective. As a result of decades of systematic work, we have completely eliminated porcine enzootic pneumonia, mange and dysentery from our pig chain.

Salmonella has been identified extremely rarely in Atria’s animal production chain, and any deviations are addressed immediately. All identified infections of salmonella are eliminated.
