Revised in 2013, Pork Quality Assurance® Plus (PQA Plus®) provides a framework for significant, relevant food safety standards and improved animal well-being. Due to pork producers’ commitment to continuous improvement, PQA Plus is regularly revised to increase its effectiveness, incorporate new research information, and ensure the program’s validity. Maintaining its food safety tradition to ensure U.S. pork products continue to be recognized domestically and internationally as the highest quality and safest available, PQA Plus also provides information to ensure producers can measure, track and continuously improve animal well-being.
The Wisconsin Pork Association’s mission is to insure the future success of the Wisconsin pork industry.
