About the product

The UNECE standard “Porcine Meat – Carcases and Cuts” offers for the first time internationally agreed specifications written in a consistent, detailed and accurate manner using anatomical names to identify cutting lines. Comprehensive color photographs and diagrams are included to facilitate practical application of the standard. The standard also defines a product code allowing all relevant information to be combined in a 20-digit string. This standardization of the trading language is the foundation which allows the meat industry to adopt modern data transfer methods and streamline the flow of information and product throughout the supply chain.
