Global G.A.P. is an internationally recognised set of farm standards dedicated to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). Independently certified, this global certification has the crucial objective of safe sustainable agriculture worldwide. Stockyard is the first Australian beef brand to achieve this standard.
The internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 requires continuous monitoring and auditing to ensure we meet the quality standards we have imposed. Stockyard has continued to exceed standard levels since the company received initial accreditation in 2001.
HACCP Australia Food Safety Accreditation provides a recognised endorsement of food safety excellence. This endorsement offers assurance to the industry of a product’s suitability for use within a HACCP-based food safety programme. In alignment with AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 protocol, Stockyard continues to proudly offer products that have been exposed to the highest food safety measures.
Safe Food QLD
Safe Food QLD accreditation allows Stockyard to store and deliver wholesale/retail products at our head office warehouse location. All production requirements completed off site are only done in Safe Food QLD accredited facilities to ensure the utmost hygiene and food safety precautions.
Meat Standards Australia ™ (MSA) is a beef grading program that labels beef with a grade and recommended cooking method to guarantee tenderness. Individual carcase attributes such as breed content, meat colour, marbling, fat depth, maturity and ultimate pH of the carcase are collected as all have an interrelated effect on eating quality. Results of grading are allocated to the carcase including individual primal quality grades, days of ageing required to achieve the grade, and recommended cooking method.
