Ensuring Animal Welfare Auditor Training and Standards
Prior to Professional Animal Auditor Certification Organization (PAACO), established in 2004, there was no standardization or accreditation for animal welfare auditing.
Since then, PAACO has trained auditors to serve the swine, dairy, poultry, beef cattle, and feedlot industries. In the process, PAACO provides much needed expertise, consistency, and required training.
PAACO has become the authority on animal welfare auditing, providing high-quality training and certification credentials for auditors and audits.
PAACO’s trainers are industry icons, people who work in animal welfare and have extensive experience in their area of expertise as well as auditing.
Animal welfare issues affect multiple segments of our animal and food industry, and they all must support comprehensive animal care areas.
Animal care is widely recognized to have an impact on the following:
- Meat and Poultry Manufacturers and Processor
- Retail and Grocers
- Food Service and Restaurants
- Government Food Purchases
- Government and Regulations
- Sustainability and Marketing
- Pharmaceutical Companies
- Equipment Manufacturers
- Other Animal Interest
- Animal Laboratories
