A sustainable future for Australian pork

We have the privilege of working with many people pioneering the future of food in this country. One is Australian Pork, a progressive organisation ensuring a sustainable future for pig farmers.

With the recent Sustainability Framework release, Australian Pork is leading the world in this space. Bringing the industry together through its four pillars – people, pigs, planet and prosperity – it’s paving the way for a strong Australian pork industry that will provide a quality, sustainable protein for generations to come.

‘People’ means advocating for Australian pork; it’s taking care of the product and ensuring that the community knows about the positive impact of the pork industry. ‘Pigs’ means leading the world in animal welfare, putting in place the highest animal practices. ‘Planet’ means adopting innovation and technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste streams, being a leader in environmental practice. And ‘prosperity’ means putting pork forward as a valuable contribution to the Australian economy and pig farmers.

Australian Pork’s work is extremely valuable. It is supporting both the people within the industry and local communities. It’s ensuring the highest quality welfare for pigs, and it’s leaving the planet in a better condition.

And it is taking a holistic approach, looking at the broader food industry – launching its PorkStar campaigns to engage, experiment and reinvent pork, and recognise its versatility and creative potential as a premium protein.

Straight To The Source will continue to work closely with Australian Pork and PorkStar, their industry program inspiring and educating foodservice professionals,  to promote the 4 Ps of their new framework, and connecting the dots between what happens on farm and from farm-to-plate. Australian Pork’s work in sustainability is both trailblazing and important. It’s a privilege working so closely with the organisation, and we look forward to engaging with it in the future and watching the innovative solutions it puts forward to ensure pork always has a place on the Australian fork.
