Chicken and turkey meat produced in compliance with the national food quality scheme.
Quality Assurance For Food Products (QAFP) - Chicken and turkey carcasses, cuts and meat
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 system was notified in 2018 (reference number: 2018/623/PL), when its name was: ‘Chicken, turkey, and young Polish oat goose carcasses, cuts and meat’. The current draft amendments mainly concern issues related to reducing the use of antibiotics, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving animal
welfare. In addition, changes have been made to the general section of the Scheme, concerning the accreditation of certification bodies for the QAFP Scheme.
Amendments to the requirements of the ‘QAFP – Chicken and turkey carcasses, cuts and meat’ have been developed 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 the scheme.
