02.Free-range pork certification schemes

One way for shoppers to understand how Australian free-range pork is farmed is to look for products that carry certification logos.

Certifcation schemes indicate the meat has been farmed under a certain set of standards, and that the farms are regularly audited to check compliance. However, we found information provided on some of these certifiers’ websites is very general, while other standards may be incomprehensible to the typical consumer.

CHOICE has compiled a table (below) that compares how free-range certification schemes sit on pig welfare issues.
