Maple Leaf Foods says it’s starting an “animal care commitment” – to improve conditions and reduce discomfort for animals in the food supply chain.

The company says it plans to require its pork and poultry operations to undergo an annual independent audit – and correct any deficiencies.

It will also try to further enhance approaches to pain management and potential alternatives to procedures such as surgical castration.

Maple Leaf says it will continue to reduce or eliminate antibiotic use –  while recognizing the importance of providing the medication necessary to sick or injured animals.
