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 supply chain.
