In recent years there has been a rapid growth in the number of quality assurance schemes operating in the EU pigmeat sector.
In Ireland, as an EU member state we have a very efficient veterinary control system. Pigs are monitored & tested on the farm.
The EU's commitment to consumer health and safety is famously uncompromising and demands the highest standards of food safety and animal welfare from food producers.
In line with EU Regulations, and producer membership of the Pork Quality Assurance Scheme, Irish pork is completely traceable from farm-to-fork.
Meeting Customer Specifications
Irish pork producers work with retail, foodservice, distributor and manufacturing clients on a global basis and have an understanding of the specific requirements and specifications of their customers and markets.
