Meat processing

Meat is a valuable and sensitive foodstuff, and the requirements for handling this product are extremely strict. Companies which process QS meat procure raw material from businesses that are QS certified.

This ensures complete quality assurance and traceability right from the start. QS supports meat-processing companies by defining practice-oriented requirements that are summarised in well-structured guidelines and checklists.

Independent and qualified auditors monitor whether and how requirements are fulfilled, ensuring that everyone delivers quality, from farm to shop.


Monitoring programmmes

There are four comprehensive monitoring programmes for meat, livestock and feed in the QS scheme: antibiotics monitoringsalmonella monitoring, feed monitoring and the collection of diagnostic data.

QS Agreements

QS actively promotes cooperation with other standard owners across national borders, so that everyone can rely on each other. In the interests of food and feed safety, QS maintains a close exchange with the standard owners- a good basis for joint further development.

BePork (Belpork v.z.w.)

There is a mutual audit recognition between the Belgian standard BePork and QS. Pig farms, as well as slaughter and deboning companies that have been successfully certified according to BePork, can deliver live pigs or pork to the QS scheme.

 

The bilateral agreement replaces the previous Certus and CodiplanPlus standards. After a transitional phase in which the previous certificates will continue to be valid, slaughter and deboning companies will only be able to deliver into the QS scheme on the basis of BePork certification from January 1, 2022, and farms from January 1, 2023.
