Coles Free Range Pork
Coles source free range RSPCA Approved Pork from pig farms in Western Australia.
These farms are certified RSPCA Approved and assessed 2 times a year by specially trained RSPCA Assessors. On free range pig farms that have RSPCA Approved certification, pigs have outdoor access year-round with comfortable lying areas that are sheltered from the elements and have quality bedding. Sows (mother pigs) have a secluded place to build a nest for her young when she is ready to give birth. Breeding pigs on these farms also have access to wallows which is an important form of enrichment.
Along with this, pigs on these farms are never kept in cages or crates of any kind and are not subjected to painful husbandry procedures, such as teeth clipping, tail docking, or surgical castration. With over 300 requirements, the RSPCA’s Standard for Pigs aims to provide a quality enriched environment whether this is indoor, outdoor bred or free range.
