Friland's organic farmers
Friland’s organic animals are born and bred on Danish farms where animal welfare and environment are a first priority. Organic farmers’ production of pigs are subject to the organic inspection principles carried out by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. The Danish AgriFish Agency is responsible for the inspection and control visits carried out on farms.

Inspections are carried out by the Danish AgriFish Agency at least once a year. Upon approval the farmer is authorised to run an organic farm with livestock. The set of rules meets both the EU legal requirements and the Danish state control for organic agricultural production.
