BPEX launches meat quality scheme

The British Pig Executive (BPEX), together with the meat quality research group at Bristol University, is launching a scheme to help improve the quality of pork.

The programme's aim is to work on an individual level with pork processors. The scheme is free, though there will be a cost if any analysis or measurements are required.

Vital for the future
BPEX knowledge transfer manager, Silvia Nicolau-Solano, said: "Getting top quality consistent pork and pork products is vital for the future of the British pig industry.

"A number of the larger processors have already expressed an interest in the project but it is open to all."

Those interested will have to complete a short questionnaire which will be followed by a visit from a BPEX KT manager and someone from Bristol University to discuss key issues.
