According to June 2016 figures issued by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, in 2015, 52% of the €10.8bn of Irish food exports was made up of beef and dairy products/ingredients. As a key driver in the economy, the food sector’s reputation relies heavily on the importance of Quality Assurance programmes to ensure that consumers, both nationally and internationally, have full confidence in the food produced in this country.

Since 2006 Capita Customer Solutions has conducted farm inspections as part of Bord Bia’s Beef & Lamb Quality Assurance Scheme. During this time we have performed approx. 250,000 farm audits across Ireland and our high standard of auditing is a pivotal element in ensuring that the Quality Assurance schemes are an excellent marketing tool for Irish beef and lamb produce at home and abroad.
