Meat Sector

Especially in the meat industry, it is particularly important that all parties can rely on each other: Slaughtering and deboning plants ensure that the animals are slaughtered responsibly and cut to the highest hygiene standards. Through traceability systems and extensive quality assurance measures meat processing and butchery businesses ensure that only high quality raw materials are processed into meat and meat products.

QS supports all parties in the practice-oriented implementation of these extensive quality assurance measures. On the sub-pages listed below we have compiled all relevant information, guidelines and self-assessment checklists for you:
