Porcine Meat - Carcases and Cuts

Porcine Meat - Carcases and Cuts

The UNECE standard for Porcine Meat - Carcases and Cuts offers for the first time internationally agreed specifications written in a consistent, detailed and accurate manner using anatomical names to identify cutting lines. Comprehensive colour photographs and diagrams are included to facilitate practical application of the standard. The standard also defines a product code allowing all relevant information to be combine in a 20-digit string.

This Standard recommends an international language for raw (unprocessed) pork (porcine) carcases and cuts marketed as fit for human consumption. It provides purchasers with a variety of options for meat handling, packing and conformity assessment that conform to good commercial practice for meat and meat products intended to be sold in international trade.

This standardization of the trading language is the foundation which allows the meat industry to adopt modern data transfer methods and streamline the flow of information and product throughout the supply chain.
