The discussion on Monday, January 21 will cover why the new regime has been introduced, what it means for producers and why robust compliance is pivotal to the Red Tractor scheme. It is open to all Red Tractor members and industry stakeholders.

Red Tractor pork chairman Mike Sheldon said: “The purpose of the new risk-based approach to Red Tractor assessments is to encourage all producers to meet the standards first time. The standards themselves have not changed under this approach – rather this is about getting closer to our ambition of: every producer, every standard, every day.”
