Organically Freybe FAQs
Freybe is dedicated to sourcing locally whenever possible. Unfortunately, a limited supply of Canadian organic pork makes it difficult for us to produce these organic products here in Canada. We are fortunate to have numerous organic pork farms in close proximity to our partner’s production facilities in Germany, lowering transportation distances from finishing to production. Not only do we find this reduces our ecological footprint, but it also keeps production costs low--a savings we can pass on to our customers.
Since Freybe’s beginnings 170-plus years ago in Germany, we are committed to providing high-quality, delicatessen specialties that our customers ask for by name. Organically Freybe products, specially prepared for us by our like-minded German partner, are the newest examples of this long-standing tradition.
Biopark organic standards meet or exceed all Canadian organic requirements. While both are based on the tenets of raising livestock in the healthiest of living conditions, Biopark farms adhere to stricter requirements that result in more sustainable farming practices. For example, 50% of the feed given to Biopark-raised pork must be grown the same farm.
