Quality Assurance

As one of Europe’s leaders in food excellence, Ireland goes an extra mile on top of EU mandated legislation. In recent years, Quality Assurance schemes for the beef sector have been widely introduced at the national level, further enhancing food safety standards and meeting the demands of consumers. The EU strongly supports this trend through actions, such as introducing EU wide quality schemes like the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), & Traditional Specialties Guaranteed (TSG); and establishing the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) which is based in Ireland.
