  • Description

    The Global Red Meat Standard, GRMS, is a scheme specifically developed for the red meat industry. Its cornerstone is product safety, focusing on critical areas affecting the maintenance of high meat safety requirements.

    The objective of the Global Red Meat Standard is to deliver transparency about the food safety, quality and hygiene systems that are implemented in factories that slaughter, cut, debone and handle meat and meat products from pork and beef. The transparency is delivered through an independent certification process based on EN 45011.

    The Standard comprises the entire production chain and is, therefore, applicable to all aspects of transport, lairage, stunning, slaughtering, deboning, cutting and handling of meat and meat products.
