Animal Health & Welfare
At Peco, we strive to do what’s right. We raise chickens to provide a safe, nutritious and quality product to families around the world and pledge to promote and protect the health and welfare of our chickens. An all-encompassing Animal Health and Welfare program helps to keep our chickens as healthy and comfortable as possible. This program is established and overseen by our veterinarian(s) and carried out by our family contract producers and Peco team members.
Process Verified Programs
Peco Foods utilizes a Process Verified Program (PVP) for responsible antibiotic use designed to consistently provide customers with quality poultry products. The PVP programs are used to provide assurances to our customers that the poultry products provided are sourced from Certified Responsible Antibiotic Use (CRAU) programs that are hatched, raised and harvested in the United States.
Peco Foods PVP program is supported by a documented management system, overseen by our corporate Animal Welfare and Husbandry Council, and audited at a minimum of once per year by a qualified USDA AMS certified auditor for compliance. The PVP audit verification process includes a rigorous review of a company’s program using a combination of company performed internal audits, AMS led desk audits to ensure all program requirements are accounted for and documented in their Quality Manual, and a comprehensive on-site audit of all facilities and phases of the operation that impact process verified points.
Currently Peco Foods has eight complexes with a range of PVP certifications available to meet customer needs and industry demands.
