Australian pork producers can now attain Free Range Certification under a newly developed, on-farm, free range standard, within the APIQ program.

APIQ is the overarching, on-farm quality assurance program used across the Australian pork industry. Currently, 86 per cent of Australia’s pork production is APIQ certified.

The major plus for consumers is that free range pork certified under this new standard can be labelled with the newly developed Australian Pork Certified Free Range logo. This is a guarantee that the pork in the pack has been grown under true free range conditions.

Free range production systems certified under the new APIQ Free Range standards means that the pigs have had access to paddocks for their entire life; that they have been provided with shelter and protection from the elements and predators; that they have been able to follow their natural instincts to root in the ground, forage, and to wallow; that they have been treated carefully following good practices for their health and wellbeing.
