Australia faces an increasing risk of serious diseases such as Foot and Mouth Disease and African Swine Fever. A biosecurity incursion would have huge implications for the pork industry.
South Australian producers, processors and the SA Government are in partnership to improve biosecurity and implement practice change. These initiatives are outlined in the SA Pork Supply Chain Biosecurity fact sheet.
The initiatives outlined not only support preventing disease entry to farms, but limit spread to industry, while facilitating opportunities for business continuity with heightened controls during Response and Recovery phases.
More information and reports will be provided by industry partners and Pork SA as projects are completed and facilities commissioned.
