The Sustainable Beef & Lamb Assurance Scheme (SBLAS)

Certificate Description

The Sustainable Beef & Lamb Assurance Scheme (SBLAS) demonstrates the sustainability of Irish beef and lamb farming at individual farm level and provide constructive feedback to farmers to help them with decision making aimed at improving their sustainability performance.

The SBLAS has been developed in response to the demands of the marketplace, following an increasing demand from purchasers of Irish meat products for proof that the meat is produced sustainably on farms that are certified members of an accredited Quality Assurance Scheme which is based on sustainability principles incorporating environmental, social and economic aspects. Irish beef farms already produce meat sustainably according to a European Union (EU) survey.

The program is developed by Bord Bia, whose purpose is to bring Ireland’s outstanding food, drink and horticulture to the world, thus enabling growth and sustainability of producers.
