British Meat Processors Association unveils new Pork Scheme partnership

The British Meat Processors Association (BMPA) has linked with food safety and certification providers Acoura to give its Pork Scheme members a “wider choice” of audit providers and increased range of combined services.

The BMPA, whose members include a wide range of abattoirs, cutting plants and processors, runs its own Pork Scheme, covering pork, bacon, sausages, ham and cooked pork, with audits examining several elements such as pig welfare, manufacturing practices food quality and safety.

“We have plans to grow our quality assurance membership and strengthen the brand over the coming year, and through partnering with another specialist in our sector we hope to bring the benefits of our schemes to a wider audience,” said BMPA’s Technical Policy Advisor, Henrietta Sameke.

“We’re therefore looking forward to working with Acoura and believe that their wide range of combined audit services, technical expertise and full UK coverage will be of benefit to both our existing and future members.”
