Supplier News

Western Australian residents will now have access to more RSCPA approved pork from Linley Valley’s range of Free Range Pork and Plantaganet Pork, according to Pork CRC .

Both companies raise their pigs on Western Australian farms that meet the RSPCA’s high animal welfare standards. This gives both Linley Valley and Plantaganet Pork the RSPCA’s Paw of Approval.

“We are very excited about this relationship with Linley Valley and Plantaganet Pork and their RSPCA Approved products,” said RSPCA Australia CEO Heather Neil.

“It’s great that we can be providing consumers with the higher welfare pork products that we know they are looking for.”

The objective of the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme is to improve the lives of farm animals by moving away from conventional farming systems to production environments that meet the animal’s welfare and behavioural needs.

“As a result of Linley Valley’s and Plantaganet Pork desire to meet high animal welfare standards, and the RSPCA’s direct work with pig farmers – hundreds of thousands of pigs will have a much better life,” said Neil.

“Sows on RSPCA Approved farms are not kept in stalls and have the freedom to forage, root and wallow in the mud and exhibit their full range of natural behaviours.”

Linley Valley and Plantaganet Pork are proud to have their high standard farms approved under the RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme.

“We are very pleased to have our Linley Valley Free Range Pork approved by the RSPCA. It’s great to have our brand recognised as part of a scheme that sets the bar high on animal welfare,” said Ron Penn, General Manager, Linley Valley Pork Linley Valley.

“It is a real credit to our farmers to achieve this and gives us confidence to invest in the future and grow the business further,” said David Plant, General Manager, Plantaganet Pork.
