Specially Selected Pork is the brand representing product from the Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) Quality Assurance scheme.
Around 95% of pigs in Scotland are covered by the scheme which ensures livestock is reared to Farm Assurance Standards which provide traceability and modern, professional farming practices.
See the video below for what farmer Andrew Peddie has to say about the standards behind the Specially Selected Pork label:
The Assurance Standards underpinning the brand ensure the highest in animal health and welfare by including the Scottish SPCA in the inspection process. Other key areas of the supply chain including animal feed, hauliers and slaughtering plants are included in the process to ensure a whole-chain approach.
With an exemplary record of strict animal health standards, we're delighted our collaboration with key stakeholders and the Scottish SPCA, Scotlan'ds animal welfare charity, was recently recognised at the recent Scotland Food & Drink awards ceremony.
