Meat classification


Neutral classification and weighing of livestock is determined by an officially approved classification company based on predefined criteria of slaughter animals, on-site in the slaughterhouses. This is the basis for the meat law of April 9th, 2008 and its implementing regulations.

The officially approved body classifies the individual halves of the slaughtered animal into trading classes and determines the weight. This data will form the basis for the settlement between abattoir and supplier.
