Belgian quality standards are converted to the BePork standard

On January 1, 2021, the previous Belgian quality standards Certus and CodiplanPlus were converted to the new BePork standard. The Belgian standard supplier Belpork combines the previous separate standards for pork (Certus) with those for live pigs (CodiplanPlus).

After a transition phase, in which the previous certificates are still valid, slaughterhouses and meat cutting companies can only supply in the QS system from 1 January 2022 and agricultural operations from 1 January 2023 on the basis of BePork certification.

Regardless of this new bilateral agreement, QS is already in discussions with Belpork and with other European standardization bodies on important business topics, such as the debate on piglet castration and pig farming conditions.
