UK BEEF LABELLING SCHEME
(Regulation EC No 1760/2000 of 17 July 2000 and 1825/2000 of 25 August 2000)
CERTIFICATION OF APPROVAL
Millers of Speyside is approved to label beef for sale with the specification set out below:
Millers of Speyside supply quality assured meats into many different businesses as well as direct to consumers at home. Whilst we continually work to improve the quality of our product through the careful selection of animals from a fairly localised area, as well as ensuring an optimum level of professionalism throughout the entire preparation process, we also realise the necessity of benchmarking the quality of our product against recognised quality marks.
As a result Millers are members of several quality assurance schemes. These include Quality Meat Scotland's 'Specially Selected' Scotch Meat scheme.
We also hold a membership of the Soil Association, allowing procurement and preparation of certified organic meats.
We feel that these standard marks, along with the company’s enviable reputation for quality, can convey to new, as well as existing customers, the aims and ethics of our organisation.
QUALITY MEAT SCOTLAND - STANDARD MARK
"Today's customer's demand not only top quality Scotch Beef but also they want to be reassured about the cattle's health and welfare, their feed and hygiene. They want to know that their Beef has been reared on Scottish soil by Scottish farmers and prepared by top class processors.
Our Scotch Beef seal of Approval can provide that assurance. It guarantees the professionalism and the standards of farmers, haulers, auctioneers, feed suppliers, processors and butchers. So when you see our blue badge of quality you can be certain that you have a prime piece of Scotch Beef, produced to perfection. Tasting is believing."
Jim Walker CBE, former chairman, Quality Meat Scotland
