Developed by the industry owned Red Tractor Assurance British Pig Scheme, the standard is designed to assess the ability of pig breeders and finishers to comply with animal welfare standards, food safety and traceability requirements, and demonstrate due diligence.
It is now recognised by all major UK food retailers with pork and pig meat products produced under RTA standards eligible to carry the MLC Quality Standard Mark and the “Red Tractor logo.
Certification to the RTA Standard is now a fundamental requirement of many leading pig marketing groups, pig abattoirs and pig meat processors.
NSF Certification offers an integrated package where all farm enterprises can be assessed in one visit.
