Ontario Pork Ushers in Era of Change and Accountability


GUELPH, Ont. — Ontario Pork has taken an important step in addressing the growing expectations of consumers, retailers and policymakers in areas of economic, environmental, social and governance performance with the release of its inaugural “Social Responsibility Report.”

“We are proud to be the first livestock group in the province to commit to setting benchmarks that will allow us to monitor the improvements of the sector over time,” says Amy Cronin, Chair of Ontario Pork. “There is great appetite from a wide range of audiences to learn more about what we do and we needed to tell the stories that shape our industry in a way that was meaningful and transparent. Our members have embraced this process and they are invested in leaving a positive legacy for future generations.”

Based on internationally recognized methodologies and standards, the social responsibility approach of Ontario Pork is based on six dimensions:

• Farm management
• Economic performance
• Environmental stewardship
• Animal care and food-safety
• Relationships with the community
• Workers’ well-being
