Karro Food Group develops pork products across categories to meet consumer demand. We process pork across the different welfare systems; Indoor and Outdoor Bred, Outdoor Reared, Freedom Food and Antibiotic Free pigs. We breed our own pigs from our farms in Brydock, Scotland, as well as sourcing animals from farmers local to our operations.
We have strong farming links across the country going back many years; in fact, many of the farmers in our Yorkshire farm base have been working with us for over three generations. This approach has helped us secure an award winning reputation for optimal welfare standards and high quality pork products, and ensures that we have unrivalled production chain traceability.
We develop specific ranges with our farming partners to meet customer demand, including Indoor & Outdoor Bred, Outdoor Reared, Freedom Food and Antibiotic Free.
At our Brydock Farms site in Aberdeenshire, we have 10,500 outdoor sows and produce 4,600 of our own high welfare pigs every week. The welfare of our animals is of the highest priority at the farm and across our business. All our pigs are bred outdoors and are kept and processed in the most humane way possible, with full adherence to UK welfare standards. This commitment to welfare and humane farming was recognised with a Compassion in World Farming Award in 2011 when we were presented with a Leadership in Pig Welfare award.
