The cross-stage QS scheme offers comprehensive control of the entire food chain. Exactly at that point, QS differs from other quality assurance systems. Whether feed sector, agriculture, slaughtering, deboning or meat-processing companies, wholesale or food retail: QS includes all responsible stages of the production and marketing process. Together with them, QS organizes reliable quality assurance along the entire value chain - from farm to shop.
Only products that have been produced and marketed according to the requirements of the QS scheme at all stages of production and marketing may bear the QS certification mark. The blue QS certification mark symbolizes the joint efforts of over 150,000 QS scheme participants. For consumers, it is a clear signal that they are buying safe food from good hands.
