Guaranteed product safety

Our high-quality products are safe. Our systematic safety assurance extends throughout the value chain. We procure animals directly from the farms, so we know how and in what kind of environment they are farmed.

We follow strict product safety standards throughout our production chain. All HKScan’s production units have a certified product safety system in use (IFS, BRC or FSSC 22000). In addition, our productions operate in accordance with the statutory self-monitoring plan.

Our operating countries are naturally good places to produce meat, also in terms of environment.

All HKScan’s operating countries are well-equipped to ensure a safe food chain. We have abundant and clean water resources, cool climate, cold winters, long summer days, clean soil and air. Together with professional farmers, we ensure food safety from field to table.
