The purpose of the Antonius scheme is to produce pigs of very high quality and to meet a number of well-defined requirements for the welfare and production conditions of the pigs, which exceed the minimum requirements of the legislation. Among the requirements are more space requirements, straw requirements in all paths, free-range sows throughout life, no tail cupping as well as feed and health management in the herd and farm management in general.
In cooperation with Danish Crown, Baltic Control® Certification has certified pigs under the Antonius brand scheme since 2011. Farms which are or want to be part of the Antonius brand scheme will get a visit from highly qualified auditors from Baltic Control® Certification once a year.

Baltic Control® Certification specializes in sustainability certification of companies in the energy sector.The prerequisite for such a sustainability certificate is that a company is subject to a legal requirement for documentation that affects all parts of the value chain. For example, you must document that your production does not harm or damage natural areas.
