THE CODE OF PRACTICE
FOR THE LABELLING OF
PORK AND PORK PRODUCTS
Produced by BPEX
The Pig Meat Supply Chain Task Force launched the voluntary
Code of Practice for the labelling of pork and pork products.
The Code of Practice was drawn up to provide the pig meat
supply chain with a set of guidelines to help them produce
clear, consistent and unambiguous labelling on all pork and
pork products. It calls for the country of origin of the pork
used in pork products to be clearly displayed.
Organisations that sign up to the Code of Practice are able to
provide consumers with clarity and even greater confidence
in the pork products they purchase. The Code of Practice
is consistent with the policy of the Food Standards Agency
which wants labelling to be clear, consistent and transparent.
The Code of Practice applies to the whole of the pig meat

The Code of Practice is in the process of being revised to
reflect the EU law on country of origin labelling for fresh
and frozen pork that is in force from 1 April 2015.
