Alternatives to BC's Meat Inspection Program


Upland worked alongside AG Consulting to conduct a comprehensive review of the traditional BC Meat Inspection Program and to identify alternatives to the inspection model for the BC Ministry of Agriculture. The project involved a literature review and a jurisdictional scan of 14 jurisdictions to survey alternatives to traditional meat slaughter inspection. Interviews were conducted with key industry representatives. The final report analyzes results from the literature review, jurisdictional scan and stakeholder interviews to detail potential innovative alterative models to meat inspection that are cost effective while continuing to maintain high standards of food safety and animal welfare.
