Trust the Tractor - look out for the logo on your pork, bacon and ham!
What does the Red Tractor mean?
The Red Tractor is a food assurance scheme that looks at production standards on safety, hygiene, animal welfare and food production.
It was put in place to reassure consumers that the food we are buying is safe to eat and has come from suppliers that have been independently inspected and certified to agreed and acceptable standards - right across the food chain from farm to pack!
In Britain, over 78,000 farmers are part of the Red Tractor scheme! The Red Tractor logo shows the Union flag if the food comes from UK farms. Red Tractor pig farmers have to meet 130 different standards.
One of the main aims of LIPs is to communicate the values of the Red Tractor Pork Scheme through our nationwide activities and events.
From 2020 this is the new logo that will be prominent on products in store.
