There is great focus on environmental performance in the production of pork. This is due to the fact that the Danish food business operators are focusing their efforts on producing more with less resources and less environmental impact.
In order to ensure a high food safety, the abattoirs use much water and energy in connection with cleaning and refrigeration. However, the abattoirs in Denmark have succeeded in reducing the energy consumption by more than a third in the recent decades and have reduced the water consumption significantly in the same period.
