Avoiding the adulteration, and/or presence of residues and contaminants in the raw materials we purchase and the food products we produce is of paramount importance to Cranswick Group and our customers. We are committed to a policy of ensuring that we and our suppliers operate to industry best practice and are in full compliance with specified legal limits, and in the case of pesticide and medicinal residues, that our producers operate to recognised codes of practice by ensuring that relevant withdrawal periods are followed prior to the produce or animal entering the food chain.
