Carton Brothers are a certified member of Bord Bia and as such conform to all standards laid down by the Bord Bia Quality Assurance Scheme. Indeed Vincent Carton our Managing Director is on the Bord Bia QAS Board.
The Poultry Products Quality Assurance Scheme operated by Bord Bia is designed to enable poultry producers and processors meet the ever increasing demands of customers and consumers. The scheme is kept under review to ensure that it continues to reflect the emerging requirements of the marketplace.
The PPQAS is an integrated scheme involving the producer, the processor and the customers. While quality and safety must begin at farm level.
Chicken that meets this standard at farm and food production level is entitled to carry the Bord Bia Quality Assurance logo on the final pack.
Shoppers who choose chicken products with this logo can have confidence that it has been produced to the highest standards. These standards are at least equivalent and in many cases exceed international standards in Europe. These standards are regularly and rigorously checked both by the farmer and by independent auditors.
