From farm to shop

Quality assurance for meat, animals and feed

The QS inspection scheme guarantees quality assurance across all stages in the production of meat and meat products. This begins with the analysis of feed and continues in cattle, pigs an poultry farming businesses which keep cattle, pigs and poultry. The subsequent production and trading stages are also subject to controls all the way through to the shop counters in food retail stores.

Only products which have passed through all stages of the QS scheme may be labelled with the QS certification mark. This means that the blue certification mark stands for seamless quality assurance – from farm to shop.

QS Monitoring Programmes

There are three comprehensive monitoring programmes for meat, livestock and feed in the QS scheme: antibiotics monitoringsalmonella monitoring and feed monitoring.

Systematic evaluation of the data from the monitoring programmes provides valuable support in ensuring early identification and reliable assessment of potential risks to the safety of food and feed. If the required parameters are not met, QS works together with the scheme participants to implement measures to prevent risks to humans or animals.
