Carrefour SA (CA.FR) said Wednesday that it is launching an independent audit of all slaughterhouses that supply products under some of its brands, while the company becomes the first French retailer to ask for cameras to be installed inside its abattoirs.
Carrefour said the independent audit covers products under its Carrefour, Carrefour Bio and Reflets de France brands, as well as products for its Carrefour Quality Lines.
The audit will check if conditions are compliant with the animal-protection framework created by the Oeuvre d'assistance aux Betes d'Abattoirs, a nonprofit association, and will be carried out by auditors from Bureau Veritas.
"As of today, Carrefour becomes the first French retailer to ask all of its suppliers to install cameras in their slaughterhouses," the company said.
Carrefour said the first audit was carried out on Dec. 20 at the Limoges slaughterhouse.
