Red Tractor Farm Assurance Beef and Lamb Scheme (formerly ABM)
The Red Tractor Farm Assurance Beef and Lamb Scheme sets out to maintain, develop and promote integrated Assurance standards for the benefit of its members within the red meat industry. The aim is to provide consumers and retailers with confidence about product quality attributes including food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection.
Red Tractor Farm Assured British beef and lamb is world class. It is produced on farms that are managed by highly professional, well-qualified and caring stockmen. The Scheme also sets standards for other critical links in the meat supply chain: livestock feed, transport, markets and abattoirs.
Previously know as Assured British Meat (ABM), the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Beef and Lamb Scheme was fully integrated into Assured Food Standards (AFS) on 1 January 2009.
