In cooperation with COOP, Baltic Control® Certification has since September 1st, 2016 been assigned to control farms which are or want to be part of COOP's animal welfare brand scheme. The farms will receive inspection visits by Baltic Control® Certification's experienced auditors once a year.

COOP's animal welfare brand scheme was established in consultation with Aarhus University Department of Animal Science, Animal Protection (Dyrenes Beskyttelse) and the Danish Organic Association (Økologisk Landsforening) and includes criterias for claiming animal welfare, in the form of welfare labeling (symbolized by the welfare heart). The COOP animal welfare brand is divided into four levels and so far covers these animal groups: egg laying hens, slaughter poultry, pigs and dairy cattle. The four levels are:

1 Welfare heart: The good stable life

2 Welfare hearts: The good outdoor life

3 Welfare hearts: The organic life

4 Welfare hearts: The extra good life

 

All farmers who wish to become part of the COOP's animal welfare brand scheme must be registered through Baltic Control® Certification. This also applies to organic farms, where the control itself is handled by the Danish Agricultural Agency (NaturErhvervstyrelsen). Furthermore, slaughterhouses, dairies, egg packing companies and other companies wishing to sell products under the COOP animal welfare brand scheme must be registered through Baltic Control® Certification.

If you have questions regarding certification within COOP's welfare concepts or wish to receive our certification regulations please do not hesitate to contact us by phone + 45 39 39 05 35 or by mail cert@balticcontrol.com.
