What is Specially Selected Pork?
Specially Selected Pork is the flagship brand of the pork industry in Scotland. When you see the Specially Selected Pork label on pack it is your guarantee that the pork has been assured for the whole of its life.
Specially Selected Pork is sourced from farms that meet stringent criteria including animal welfare and natural production methods from within Quality Meat Scotland’s Pig Assurance standards.
Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) is the public body responsible for helping the Scottish red meat sector promote Specially Selected Pork, whilst maintaining the highest standards in Scotland’s red meat industry. Our whole chain assurance scheme means only animals that meet our stringent assurance standards are eligible to be classed as Specially Selected Pork.
