At Swift we are passionate about producing a quality veal product that is ethically raised and supported by extensive regulations for animal welfare and handling, traceability, and food safety.
Swift Veal is proudly sourced from the Netherlands, renowned for the safest veal in the world. Our commitment to animal welfare forms the basis for the high quality of our products.
Calves in our program live in groups of around 10 animals in sheltered and temperate housing. The farmers monitor and maintain feeding logs, never administering growth hormones, allowing our calves to grow naturally. Never tethered, each calf has the freedom to wander around, play, sleep, eat or ruminate as it likes.
The stalls are spacious, light and airy. The calves are fed calf milk supplemented with roughage. Providing a generous amount of roughage makes an important contribution to improving animal welfare. Chopped straw is also processed in the roughage which contributes to improved digestion and distraction.
Swift Veal stands for premium quality, tenderness and exquisite taste.
Veal also presents many health benefits being a lean meat, low in sodium and low in cholesterol. Veal is also rich in vitamins, such as vitamin B1, vitamin D, protein and iron.
