Chain Management: Pork at its Best
Pork at its Best (VOB) originated from a passion for consistent quality, sustainability and cooperation. Van Loon Group took the initiative for Pork at its Best (Dutch: Varken op z’n Best), the innovative supply chain concept for improving the quality of our pork, making the supply chain transparent, sustainable and controllable. The roll-out takes place under the direction of Best Star Meat. With this program we enhance animal health and welfare, reduce pressure on nature and the environment, and improve the quality of the meat. We collaborate with chain partners to establish a transparent and fair distribution of the chain margin, including supporting the earnings model of the pig farmers. Together, we ensure that sustainable meat remains affordable.

Pork Print Tool
In 2021 we launched the Pork Print Tool in collaboration with HAS University of Applied Sciences. Van Loon Group uses this tool to monitor the carbon footprint of our pork production businesses. The carbon footprint indicates the amount of greenhouse gasses produced for each kilo of pork, from birth to slaughter. The total footprint from birth to slaughter has been mapped for 38 pig producers.
