Sustainability in the production of pork with improved nutritional and eating quality using strategic feeding in outdoor pig production

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-1999-30162
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-10-2000
Duration: 42 months
Total cost: 3,951,562 EUR
EC Contribution: 2,731,993 EUR
Scientific Officer: Michel VAN DEN BOSSCHE
Research topic: 5.1.1. Sustainable agriculture/Animal Systems

Abstract:
The aim of the project is to establish the general framework for outdoor sustainable pig production systems, which can subsequently be introduced in all EU countries and prospective EU countries, to produce pork with those quality characteristics demanded by consumers of today and tomorrow: production of fresh pork and possibilities for production of processed products, which correspond to the increasing demands of European consumers regarding safety, nutritional quality, eating quality, improved shelf-life and production with high degree of animal welfare and care for the environment. Moreover, to predict the market possibilities of analogous high-quality pork products, a thorough analysis will be performed regarding consumer response and demands concerning that type of pork within different European countries.
