Engaging our partners and suppliers

The Pierre & Vacances-Center Parcs Group has been working with its catering partners for more than two years to gradually integrate animal welfare criteria into its purchasing processes, with a view to improving the living conditions of farm animals.

Today, the Group is committed, along with its catering partners, to ensuring that by 2026, 100% of chicken meat supplies on all sites bearing one of the Group’s brands come from farms and slaughterhouses that respect the criteria of the European Chicken Commitment. This policy is already in place for our sites in the Netherlands. In France, the Group will go further and ensure that at least 20% of its chicken meat volumes come from farms that meet these criteria and guarantee access to open air or a winter garden.

The Group already invites its partners to commit to animal welfare and will pay close attention to ensuring that this goal is met.

In addition, the Group and its partners are committed to abandoning eggs and egg products from caged hens by 2025, for all its sites, in all countries where the Group is established, and to use only eggs and egg products from free-range or free-range farms or alternatives to eggs. This policy is already in place for restaurants operated by our partners in Belgium, the Netherlands and France.
