The industrialization of our food system is scary. Over the last 30 years we've worked hard to develop standards and procedures that meet the most stringent food safety criteria. We control all aspects of production from pasture to plate which gives us the flexibility to implement programs designed specifically to meet the needs of our customers.
Meeting the food safety needs of our customers, as well as those set out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the Alberta Meat Inspection Branch (MIB), are very important to us. After speaking to thousands of people about their food safety concerns we created our stringent protocols. These include:
In 2016 TK Ranch completed construction of our own government inspected red meat slaughter facility, it's located right on our ranch. It's third party audited to the highest animal welfare standards in North America – Animal Welfare Approved . This way we don't have to transport our animals long distances or lose control of how they are treated at the end of their lives. We also built our own Alberta Health Services inspected and approved meat cutting facility on land we purchased near Calgary. Currently we only process between 4 and 6 beef and 6 pigs every week and this is done with the utmost respect by TK Ranch family members and staff. When you compare this model to large factory facilities that process 4,500 beef or 10,000 pigs every day you can appreciate how much of a difference this makes to the animal and the end product.
