Animal Welfare Policy

MISSORD Animal Welfare Policy

We believe that animals are entitled to humane treatment and to have their basic needs met. This must be respected through the adoption of good animal husbandry, and the fulfillment of our animal welfare requirements.
We recognize the importance of securing our supply of raw materials from an animal welfare perspective through tough requirements and full traceability. The Five Freedoms recommendations on animal welfare set out by the World Organisation by Animal Health (OIE), serve as the guiding principles on all farms used in the production of fibers for Mukzin products. In addition, we also have material-specific requirements:
