You can taste the quality in Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured beef and lamb. It all comes down to the lush, green, wholesome land the animals are free to graze on. We can thank our mild yet wet rainy climate for that!

We also take pride in the freshness and quality of our beef and lamb. Farmed in harmony with the environment, our grass fed beef and lamb is lean, tender, naturally nutritious and wholesome and internationally renowned for its succulence, texture and flavour.

But don’t just take our word for it. This quality assurance is backed by an internationally recognised quality standard and is based around Government’s legislative requirements. Our reputation rests on a scheme that ensures farms are independently inspected and certified by a UKAS approved Certification Body operating to a European standard (ISO 17065).

The Northern Ireland beef and Lamb Farm Quality Assurance Scheme is one of the world’s longest running assurance schemes and was officially launched in 1992 to give consumers assurances about the farm end of the production chain with 3 key pillars: food safety, animal welfare and care for the environment. When you see the logo you can be sure the meat is of premium quality and of the highest standards.

The Northern Ireland Beef and Lamb (NIBL) FQAS Quality Mark gives you this assurance so all you’ll have to think about is enjoying the flavour. Remember – always look for the Northern Ireland Farm Quality assurance logo – it’s your guarantee of quality from farm to fork.
