We seek continuous improvement in animal welfare practices within our fresh pork supply chain. Every fresh pork supplier will be required to meet the new program requirements.
Specific new tracking and audit requirements include: Each fresh pork supplier must have on-farm video monitoring for sow farms and will be subject to unannounced animal welfare video audits by an accredited and independent third-party.
Farms will be given 72 hours notice.
Each fresh pork supplier must implement an internal annual animal welfare audit for all farms that includes a grading system and corrective action tracking. This must occur at all farms. Each supplier must make the documentation and results of the tracking and audit program available to Walmart as requested, but not less than twice annually.
Each supplier must not only ensure that key management personnel are PQA Plus Certified but also require each production site to ensure that key management personnel that handle pigs are PQA Plus Certified. Each site must participate in the NPB third-party verification pool.

Farm Animal Welfare Farm animals provide an important and nutritious source of protein. There is growing public interest in how food is produced and consumers have questions about whether current practices match their values and expectations about the well-being of farm animals.
Animal science plays a central role in guiding these practices, but does not always provide clear direction. Increasingly, animal welfare decisions are being considered through a combination of science and ethics.
Position We recognize that farm animals play an important role in providing nutritious meat, dairy and eggs to our customers and members. We believe that farm animals in our supply chain should be treated humanely throughout their lives and that the welfare of farm animals should be considered in selection of all production systems, practices and technologies.
First, we expect that our suppliers will not tolerate animal abuse of any kind.

Third, we will work with our supply chain partners to implement practices consistent with the Five Freedoms of animal welfare.
