How we are inspected by external parties

External inspections in abattoirs are mandatory and necessary. These inspections are conducted by the responsible inspectorates. In the Netherlands, this is the Netherlands Food and Consumer Safety Authority (NVWA). At least two supervising veterinarians are active during production in all Vion abattoirs. They organise the live inspections and meat inspections, during which all animals are checked for welfare and health. Moreover, independent, accredited certification agencies conduct inspections, and our customers often also send their own inspectors.

Inspection by veterinary authorities

In all Vion abattoirs, internal and external inspections are considered of great value. Particularly important for consumers are the regular inspections by the veterinary authorities. These are official government inspections in three key areas: official slaughter animal and meat inspections (abattoirs only), residue inspections (abattoirs only) and hygiene supervision of all Vion companies.

How we check ourselves

In order to guarantee the production of meat with the highest quality standards, every step in the production process is accompanied by a multiple internal control system.
