During our visit to a piglet slaughterhouse in the Netherlands, we noted various animal welfare problems. The stunning was not performed properly and sick and crippled piglets were accepted and moved through the slaughter process. We had given the slaughterhouse manager several opportunities to work with us to improve welfare and find solutions to the problems however, despite repeated polite offers, the manager continually refused this. We therefore sent our report to the Dutch authorities. This has led to stricter supervision and various improvement measures.
