Livestock Products - Beef Import Tariff Quota

Beef Import Tariff Quota Prize winning beef cattle (c) Visit Scotland

Frozen beef imports are subject to an annual quota. All beef imported under this quota must be processed, either for ready meals such as lasagne, or cooked as joints to be sold in supermarket delicatessen counters.

The Meat and Livestock Inspectors visit premises to inspect operators receiving annual beef quota. Findings on initial inspections, interim inspections and final verifications are reported to the RPA.
