Restrictions on Feeding Meat & Food Waste to Pigs

All food waste that contains meat or has come into contact with meat must be treated before it is fed to pigs. The Ministry for Primary Industries website has details on these restrictions and treatment of food waste. If you supply food waste for feeding to pigs, we recommend that you obtain an undertaking from the person you supply the food waste, stating that it will be treated according to the rules before it is fed to pigs. You can use the MPI undertaking for food waste collection template (pdf, 195.8 KB) for this undertaking.
