We implement environmentally sustainable and efficient practices throughout our whole farming system. This includes our feeding, waste management, water consumption and product distribution, as well as the contributing efforts of our employees, through the reduction of our impact on water and energy use. One of the biggest environmental impacts of this industry is related to manure production and regular assessments are conducted at GHB Farms, to analyse and improve the environmental impact of our manure management.
To ensure that our waste and water management systems are of the best possible quality, we regularly collaborate with Dr James Meyer, a specialist in the agricultural field, related specifically to water quality. Dr Meyer, a well-respected figure in the pork sector, plays a valuable role in the South African pig farming community, including keeping farmers informed about important water issues.
