Beef produced in compliance with the national food quality scheme.
‘Quality Meat Programme (QMP)’ scheme
The draft contains a description of the voluntary national quality scheme for agricultural products in compliance with the criteria set out in Article 16(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The scheme was notified in 2018 (under No.: 2018/488/PL). The currently prepared amendments mainly concern issues related to reducing the use of antibiotics, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving animal welfare.
Amendments to the requirements of the QMP scheme have been drawn up by a group of producers who will implement them. Participation in the scheme is voluntary. All entities that fulfil the requirements set out in the standards of the scheme are entitled to participate in it.
