Cameras set to be installed in our suppliers’ abattoirs in Spain


In the wake of a similar move by Carrefour France two months ago, Carrefour Spain has announced it will require its meat suppliers to install cameras in their abattoirs.

A code of animal welfare in the works

The initiative – adopted jointly with Equalia, an NGO – is designed to promote animal rights and strengthen Carrefour’s monitoring system. The requirement by Carrefour Spain is part of a broader campaign alongside its suppliers and NGOs to define a code of animal welfare that includes a series of formal commitments.

In January, Carrefour France became the first retailer to require all of its suppliers to install cameras in their abattoirs. Every facility that supplies meat products sold under the Carrefour, Carrefour Bio, Reflets de France and Carrefour Quality Lines labels will be the subject of a completely independent audit between now and the end of the year.
