Meat Standard Receives Global Recognition

A standard for meat production that has been devised and instituted by the Danish meat industry has now received global recognition.

The Global Red Meat Standard (GRMS) has received formal approval from the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an association of the world's leading food safety experts.

The GRMS is the customised standard for meat production and was created by the Danish meat industry with the aim of gaining international recognition.

All Danish co-operative slaughterhouses and cutting plants have implemented the GRMS standard since 2006.

In the US, a recall of ground beef products has led one congresswoman, Rosa DeLauro, to call for the closure of the Cargill Beef Packers plant.

While in Scotland, the industry associations, disgruntled at the way the meat inspection service is being reorganised, have joined together to call for more cost efficiencies in the Meat Hygiene Service and a streamlining of the service to deliver value for money to the abattoir operators.

A study by the BIOHAZ panel of the European Food Safety Authority analysing the pathogens that remain in the digest after animal by products have been processed for biogas production has concluded that it is irrelevant whether Clostridium perfringens remains if it is to be spread on the soil, writes TheBioenergySite senior editor Chris Harris.
