Pork from Denmark is characterised by a uniform high quality which is the result of long-standing work in the industry. Product standards such as Global Red Meat Standard (GRMS) include specific and high-quality requirements for the products of the meat industry. The abattoirs therefore perform ongoing quality control where different parameters in the meat are tested.
There is an increasing demand for documentation of quality, food safety and animal welfare during the production of meat and meat products.
Therefore, a series of product standards have been developed that are used at the abattoirs and in the organisations that perform the preparatory work such as e.g. BRC, IFS and GRMS. These standards guarantee that the quality and the food safety are under control and that the conditions can be documented and evaluated at a level supported by a certificate issued by an independent third party.
