The Australian Pork Industry Quality Assurance Program (APIQ✓®) provides the framework and standards for Australian producers to demonstrate they are responsible farmers who care for their animals, the environment and their customers, by following safe and sustainable practices.
APIQ✓® is an on-farm quality assurance system. It is based on managing farm risks by following Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), using the principles of Hazard Analysis and managing Critical Control Points (HACCP). APIQ✓® also incorporates the legal requirements for pig producers to ensure their compliance with state government legislation and supply chain requirements.
More than 90 per cent of the Australian sow herd is produced under APIQ✓®, including free range and outdoor bred raised indoors on straw certified production systems.
