QMS is the public body responsible for helping the Scottish red meat sector improve its efficiency and profitability as well as maximise its contribution to Scotland's economy.
We market the PGI labelled Scotch Beef and Scotch Lamb in the UK and abroad and promote Scottish Pork products under the Specially Selected Pork Banner.
Our internationally recognised assurance schemes cover more than 90% of livestock farmed for red meat in Scotland. They offer consumers in the UK and overseas the legal guarantee that the meat they buy has come from animals that have spent their whole lives being raised to some of the world's strictest welfare standards.
With hundreds of years of tradition behind them, Scottish Farmers pride themselves on meeting the high standards of today's modern meat consumers, at home and abroad.
Our Health and Education Department
QMS undertakes a wide range of health and education work which aims to communicate the important role of red meat in a healthy diet.
This includes many school activities such as free healthy eating sessions and cooking demonstrations. Our sessions cover the farm to fork journey and healthy eating, which is great for Primary and Secondary Schools alike. In addition though our experienced chefs and food demonstrators create an ideal opportunity to learn about the versatility, convenience and cost-effectiveness of red meat in a "fun" and interactive way. They can also discuss topics such as trace-ability and sustainability, in line with the current curriculum.
Thanks so much for considering Quality Meat Scotland's Good Family Food to come and give a free educational cooking demonstration to your class/year, please complete the form as extensively as possible because more detail will allow us to tailor each session to your needs. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
