Karro develops pork products across categories to meet consumer demand. We process pork across the different production systems; Indoor and Outdoor Bred, Outdoor Reared, Freedom Food and raised without antibiotic pigs. We breed our own pigs from our farms in Brydock, Scotland, as well as sourcing animals from farmers local to our operations.
We have strong farming links across the country going back many years; in fact, many of the farmers in our Yorkshire farm base have been working with us for over three generations. This approach has helped us secure an award winning reputation for optimal welfare standards and high quality pork products, and ensures that we have unrivalled production chain traceability.
We develop specific ranges with our farming partners to meet customer demand, including Indoor & Outdoor Bred, Outdoor Reared, Freedom Food and raised without antibiotic.
At our Brydock Farms site in Aberdeenshire, we have 28,000 sows and produce 14,000 of our own higher welfare pigs every week. The welfare of our animals is of the highest priority at the farms and across our business. All of our pigs are bred outdoors and kept and processed in the most humane way possible, with full adherence to UK welfare standards. Pigs under the Brydock Farms brand are raised without the use of antibiotics, we are industry leading in the reduction of antibiotic usage across our supply chain. We pride ourselves on rearing happy, healthy pigs, translating in to truly great tasting pork.
