About the scheme

The BMPA Pork Scheme standard provides quality assurance to retailers and consumers about pig welfare, food safety, integrity, provenance and traceability of the products that members produce.

The Scheme is the standard that sits behind the widely recognised and trusted Red Tractor consumer logo for pork and pork products. And, for many of the UK’s top retailers and food service companies, our standard is the one they insist on from their pork products suppliers.

 

Membership of the BMPA Pork Scheme is so widely demanded because the requirements go over and above those of current legislation and set a higher benchmark for product quality and integrity. Buyers are confident in the knowledge that our Scheme members work to higher standards and have been audited by independent, UKAS and ISO accredited certification bodies.

Attaining assurance through the Scheme not only allows manufacturers to prove they operate to best practice standards, but often acts as a ticket into a much wider market for their products amongst the larger retailers and food service buyers. Members can also display the Red Tractor logos on their products by applying for a license with Assured Food Standards who own the logos.
