Welcome to the Global Red Meat Standard website

About GRMS
GRMS – the customised standard for the beef and pork industry.

The Global Red Meat Standard, GRMS, is a scheme specifically developed for the meat industry. Its cornerstone is product safety, focusing on critical areas affecting the maintenance of high meat safety requirements. GRMS is EN45011 accredited and independently audited.
Amendments to the Global Red Meat Standard V4.1
There have been some misunderstandings regarding specific clauses in the Section II: Audit Protocol and Section IV: Requirements for Auditor Qualification, Training and Experience. This has now been clarified and the amendments are ready for download.
Global Red Meat Standard V4.1
The Standard has been extensively revised with advice and input from relevant stakeholders, ensuring that it continues to meet the requirements of manufacturers and retailers, and we are now proud to present the fourth edition, version 4.1.
International recognition
Since October 2009, the Global Red Meat Standard has been recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which drives equivalency between GRMS and other commercial standards recognised by GFSI.

The fact that GRMS has been specifically developed for the meat industry provides its customers with an invaluable tool for measuring a supplier’s performance.
