Quality Standard Veal


The Quality Standard Mark Scheme for veal provides high levels of assurance about the meat you buy and also covers eating quality. All veal carrying the mark is chosen according to a strict selection process to ensure it is succulent and tender. Quality Standard Mark veal is produced to higher standards than required by law with a supply chain which is fully assured and independently inspected at every stage from farm to point of purchase.

The Quality Standard Mark veal scheme includes additional requirements, which are above current commercial and legal standards applicable to the production and processing of veal.

Veal Specification
Meat from young cattle is subject to specific labelling requirements based on age at slaughter. Meat from such animals must be labelled as either veal or beef depending on age. Therefore the Quality Standard veal logo will apply to meat from animals under 8 months of age and the Quality Standard Mark beef logo for animals over 8 months at slaughter. Meat from young cattle is subject to specific labelling requirements based on age at slaughter. Meat from such animals must be labelled as either veal or beef depending on age.
