British Poultry Council Welcomes Elliott Review Findings08 September 2014
UK - The BPC welcomes the findings of the Elliott Review. Criminal activity in the food sector cannot be tolerated and Government must provide sufficient resources to police and enforce against it; while all responsible food producers can contribute by consistently meeting high standards and sharing intelligence.
All parts of the food chain have a duty of care to the consumer, and BPC members are committed to ensuring their supply chains are robust, secure, and auditable.
The poultry sector already has many of the elements highlighted in the review, and is keen to learn from the experiences of other sectors.
The BPC will be participating in the on-going development of improved auditing standards, and will continue to work with its retailers and regulators.
