Meat safety and traceability

001043-CAPRODDOCLAND.jpg

Australia’s reputation for producing clean, green and safe red meat products is a major factor underpinning our exporting success.

In order to ensure the quality and integrity of our beef, sheepmeat and goatmeat – and protect this valuable reputation – MLA and the wider red meat industry have implemented a number of traceability and quality assurance programs.

With many countries demanding full traceability from paddock to plate, these programs are essential to ensure both continued market access and further growth in demand.

They include:

  • NLIS
  • LPA
  • On-farm risk management
  • Off-farm food safety

These measures are essential to ensure market access and demand for Australia's red meat products and include:
