Apply to join the Approved Beef Labelling Scheme

This guidance was withdrawn on

The Approved Beef Labelling Scheme closed on 13 December 2014.

After this date, any voluntary information added to labels must meet the requirements of the current food labelling legislation.

You can find more information about this under food labelling and packaging.

If you want to label beef with extra information such as breed or origin, you must apply for approval and arrange independent verification.
