DuBreton Garners Support for Animal Welfare Campaign in Quebec

Pork processor duBreton is rallying public support against specific regulations in Quebec by launching a petition. The company seeks exclusion from the “Joint Plant of Quebec Pork Producers” and urges amendments to better accommodate the production of specialty hogs like organic and Humane Certified. DuBreton contends that the current regulations do not align with the needs of independent producers, hindering the development of specialty pork. The processor is actively collecting signatures from partners and consumers concerned about animal welfare. Notably, duBreton has recently emphasized its commitment to animal welfare, obtaining certification for California’s Prop 12 regulation and introducing specific farming standards for Canadian hog farmers in December.
