Quality Standard Beef & Lamb

​​The Quality Standard Mark Scheme for beef and lamb provides high levels of assurance about the meat you buy.

All beef and lamb carrying the Mark is chosen according to a strict selection process to ensure it is succulent and tender. Quality Standard Mark (QSM) beef and lamb is produced to higher standards than required by law with a supply chain which is fully assured and independently inspected at every stage.

The QSM also tells you where your beef and lamb is from. For example meat from an animal born, raised and slaughtered in England will carry the Quality Standard beef Mark or the Quality Standard lamb Mark indicating English origin with the St George's flag.

In order to carry the Quality Standard Mark (QSM) all beef and lamb must be produced and processed through a fully assured and independently audited supply chain. The standards and specifications for the QSM Scheme cover farm assurance and quality assurance throughout the supply chain, animal age, carcase specifications, maturation, eating quality and care for the environment.
