Hendrix Genetics receives Code EFABAR certificate

Alignment with Code EFABAR standards demonstrates a commitment to responsible, sustainable animal breeding. We are pleased that all species in the Hendrix Genetics portfolio have received their certificate and letter of adoption.

Code EFABAR is an initiative of the European Forum of Farm Animal Breeders (EFFAB). This distinction is a voluntary initiative of best practices to be used by EFFAB members that commit to a defined criteria of responsible breeding of livestock species. The Code EFABAR certificate is designed to promote sustainability and responsibility in the field of animal breeding. Similar to the stakes in Hendrix Genetics’ sustainability program, Code EFABAR objectives are closely connected to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Code EFABAR’s objectives include:

  • defining and promoting sustainable and responsible standards for farm animal breeding
  • promoting transparency
  • setting standards that first match and then exceed current national and EU legislation
  • a commitment to continuous improvement of environmental and social responsibility
  • working to meet United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

We share the belief that transparency and responsibility are key in the development of sustainable food production. By committing to high quality standards in the field of responsible animal breeding, together with other leaders in the industry, we can achieve a brighter, more sustainable future.
