Our farmers

The men and women behind the pigs

What drives our farmers and where in the Netherlands are they based? All farmers in the chain work according to KDV requirements. We know where the meat comes from and can also trace it.

Monitoring that works

Independent monitoring of all partners in the chain

KDV’s certification policy is based on two cornerstones: audit and support. The audits provide the basis for protecting the certification. By support we mean helping the pig farmers to implement the criteria. Find more information about our audit & support.

Always on the lookout for new solutions

Our farmers are continually developing new ways of working more sustainably. They're always seeking improvements in the welfare of their animals and the environment. How can they improve their sties so they can work more efficiently? How can they give their pigs a better life? This requires innovations in farm building. We support their innovations and work with experts in a wide range of fields. Specialist pig vets visit the farmers and together they look at what's needed there for optimum animal health.

We work with institutions like Wageningen University, to find out how we can tailor the pigs' living environment to suit their natural behaviour more. At our flagship farm in Valkenswaard, we're experimenting with important technological developments that could make our farms energy neutral. These include solar panels, efficient ventilation methods and smarter heating technology. All of this is being done under KDV Labs.
