Levoni Supply Chain Certified by CSQA

EU STANDARDS & REGULATIONS
The animal welfare is strictly governed by EU regulations & standards that intervene in the phases of breeding, transport and processing.
Directive (EC) 120/2008 – Regulation (EC) 1/2005 – Regulation (EC) 1099/2009.

CORPORATE ETHICAL AND VALUE LEGACY
Levoni has chosen to include this topic within their corporate ethical, value legacy as well as to start an ever-developing path which to date sets out much more restrictive requirements than the current European standard in force.

PRINCIPLE OF FIVE FREEDOMS
Levoni’s path comes into line with the principle of the five freedoms (Farm Animal Welfare Council 1979).
