It is essential to limit human intervention

For us, it is essential to limit human intervention and approach as close as possible to natural behavior.
We pay particular attention to the training of farmers and employees, especially for handling animals.

We are signataries of the SNA.
To ensure implementation of animal welfare at Grimaud Frères, we are signaturies of the SNA level 3 charter.

Guarantee animal welfare

In addition, we obtained the code-EFABAR (European Forum of Farm Animal Breeders) approval, which guarantee animal welfare from selection to delivery of the animals to the farm.

Evaluation animal care

Grimaud Frères is committed to caring for animals by ITAVI which allow us to evaluate animal welfare. First of all, because it is the basis for the expression of animal potential.
An animal that develops in comfort expresses its full potential.
