Why Meat Traceability is Important

Meat traceability is a complex arrangement that’s becoming increasingly popular among consumers and many fresh produce retailers. Let’s go in-depth on meat traceability and why it’s so important.

What is Meat Traceability?

Meat traceability is a scheme to assist in the reliability of food safety and handling practices. In meat production, this is the ability to trace any cut of meat from farm to fork. This means that any beef, lamb or animal produce that ends up on your plate, can be traced back to the farm where they were bred – and in some cases, even down to the food they ate.

Why Meat Traceability Matters

Meat traceability ensures that only the highest quality meat ends up on your plate. We can track produce back to the farm it was reared on. This makes it possible for us to guarantee that the meat is coming from an ethical farm.

Ensuring that our produce is reared and kept on a farm that follows all animal welfare standards is critical to us at Burts Catering Butchers. We believe that happy, healthy animals that are raised on beautiful, British, free-range lands ensure a marvellous taste sensation.

Additionally, it gives you, the consumer, that extra bit of peace of mind and confidence when your place an order with us. Knowing the animal you ate had a happy life and was in excellent physical condition might make it a lesser weight on your shoulders.

Our Commitment to Meat Traceability

Here at Burts Catering Butchers, we always have the aim of working with our suppliers, not against them. Over the years we’ve built up numerous close contacts. We’re loyal and fair and because of that our suppliers look after us.

We have extremely stringent standards, that all of our nominated suppliers are audited against. Not only does this reinforce your trust in us but also ensures that throughout their life, products have been bred, processed, stored and delivered in the best way possible.
