General - 21 April 2022

Denkavit France has become a victim of a burglary in one of our research facilities. A burglary aimed at damaging our image, our values and the calf sector in general. Recordings have been made in our research facility in France. These recordings were obtained illegally and absolutely not representative of the way we as Denkavit would like to treat our animals and what we, as Denkavit, stand for. We are shocked to see the images that show violent and inappropriate behavior towards the calves.

We would like to emphasize once again that we as Denkavit stand for treating our animals in a respectful way. In addition, we take care of each individual animal through the correct care and nutrition, which are aimed at supporting good welfare and development of the animal.

We have therefore started an accurate analysis of the factual proceedings and will take appropriate measures based on the conclusions thereof to ensure that the animals are treated with respect.
