Certification

We were the first organisation to certify Angus beef in Ireland and have perfected a system of certification which we have consistently delivered since 1997. Every single animal coming from our member farms is individually inspected to ensure that they meet our high standards. We do not hesitate to reject animals and members who do not comply with our strict regulations.

Triple Guarantee

In a world where consumers are increasingly concerned about provenance, traceability and sustainability, our robust triple inspection system uniquely safeguards our premium beef from farm to fork. This guarantees that beef carrying our brand is bone fide Certified Irish Angus which is fully traceable and of the highest quality.
