Partnership with pig farmers

Vion aspires to long-term partnerships with its suppliers and co-operates intensively with pig farmers, traders and sector organisations. This close collaboration with professional and reliable partners guarantees food safety. In this way, we can supply consumers with safe and delicious high-quality meat. On the basis of this co-operation, we have also been successful in jointly developing sustainable programmes regarding animal welfare.

Service for pig farmers

Partnership with the pig farmers is an important part of Vion Pork’s strategy. In the Netherlands, the company implements this through Vion Farming. In Germany, this is done through Vion Zucht und Nutzvieh. These entities are responsible for optimally tailoring the supply of pigs to meet market demand.

We also support pig farmers in their operations by advising and supplying them with information. Our FarmingNet online information system is an important tool in this area. FarmingNet gives pig farmers insight into their results and enables them to further optimise their business together with Vion and the feed advisor or veterinarian. We also inform our suppliers about relevant developments through newsletters and the and websites.

Co-operating in food supply chains

Vion believes in supply chain co-operation, which ensures the trust of suppliers, clients and consumers. Together with pig farmers and other supply chain partners, Vion supplies high-quality meat that meets the market demand.

We continuously invest in the development of our food supply chains. Our Good Farming concepts are based on integrated supply chain management, in which we work together with our supply chain partners in areas such as food safety, quality, animal welfare and health, traceability, transparency and sustainability.

Our Good Farming approach

Our Good Farming approach concentrates production according to the specific wishes of customers and markets. This approach means that Vion works in a demand-driven way, supplying meat of a specific quality. We also use recognised quality systems, tracking & tracing and a great deal of knowledge and expertise to guarantee certified quality. Moreover, we view sustainability as an integral part of the supply chain. Animal welfare is also an important part of the Good Farming supply chain concepts.

"A sustainable basis for a stronger supply chain"
