Farm to table
The European Union's policy on food safety covers all stages of production. European manufacturers have been working on the idea of "Farm to Table" for years. In the case of cattle and pig farming, this means that it is possible to trace the rearing and slaughtering conditions of the individual animal - such as the farm, the origin of the feed, possible diseases, the place and date of slaughter. This information is collected and stored thanks to the EU system of animal labelling (e.g. ear tags), which ensures the supervision of animal production in EU countries. Similarly, it is possible to trace the production and the origin of meat and meat preparations. Thanks to this integrated approach, the whole route of pork, beef and meat preparations is monitored in the European Union and consumers are provided with accurate information on the origin of the products they consume.
The entire production chain of high quality beef, pork and beef preparations is subject to EU food law and regular official controls. The idea of the "Farm to Table" slogan assumes the joint responsibility of producers, processors and distributors for food placed on the market.
