Sommets d’Or 2022 (4/4): the “animal welfare” winner

Alicoop is awarded for Fibra’Pig, an entertaining feed that prevents tail biting in pigs.

The Fibra’Pig is a 38mm edible fiber plug made from alfalfa fibers and straw. It is intended to improve the well-being of pigs without work constraints for the breeder, being able to comply with regulations and prevent tail biting. The product is handled using a bucket, distributed either on the ground or by the Fibra’Ball, resulting in no waste. The cork is both tough enough to prevent it from falling apart quickly and slipping through grating slots, yet soft enough to be chewed and ingested by pigs.
