PQS

Pork Quality System is a new proposal of  complex and integral high quality food production system. Its main goal is to provide market with lean pork with important for consumers and meat processors meat quality parameters. PQS means high quality of meat confirmed by a certificate. This certificate proves that special standards regarding quality, safety and inspection at each and every stage of production were met. PQS-certified pork is a guarantee of taste, durability and usefulness for cooking and processing. The production method used in that system satisfies all and any binding legal requirements regarding the well-being and health of animals and people. It also conforms to the provisions on the protection of the natural environment. PQS is a guarantee and a distinction that is worth recommending.

The system is based on a carefully prepared way of selecting the national breeds and identifying animals, as well as certain feeding principles. It includes breeding, husbandry and pre-slaughter trading, including processing and distribution. The strict standards of procedure at each and every one of these stages prepared for that system result in the high quality of pork meat that is obtained without the need to use flavour enhancers, artificial additives and food colourings.

The reliability of the product and its recognition is confirmed during an inspection conducted by an independent certifying unit, accredited for the compliance with the PN EN 45011 standard, holding an authorization issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, recognized by the Pork Quality System PQS.

The Pork Quality System PQS is in accordance with Article 32(1)(c) of Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005 of 20 September 2005 on support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and meets the requirements set out in Article 22 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 1974/2006 of 15 December 2006 laying down detailed rules for the application of Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005. Meeting these requirements resulted in recognizing the system on 11 December 2009 by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development as the national food quality system.
