Eblex/Bpex launch latest meat cuts guide

The latest edition of an invaluable cutting guide has been launched, with an expanded range that includes pork cuts for the first time.

Eblex has teamed up with its pork counterpart Bpex to update its Meat Purchasing Guide and has added a further 96 pork cuts to the existing 500 Quality Standard Mark beef, veal, lamb and mutton cuts.

The guide aims to be a user-friendly tool to aid caterers and suppliers and works in conjunction with the Cutting Specification Manual, which gives step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the cuts.

Business development manager for Eblex Dick van Leeuwen said: “We collaborated closely with Bpex to include a wide range of pork products into the sixth edition of the Meat Purchasing Guide, and this will undoubtedly benefit meat buyers and suppliers. The updated Guide will encourage uniformity across the red meat supply chain and help to eradicate inconsistencies.”

Copies of the latest version of the Meat Purchasing Guide, which is free to Quality Standard Mark members, can be ordered by calling the Quality Standard Mark (QSM) Scheme Hotline on 0845 491 8787. The Guide and step-by-step cutting specifications are available to view and download from www.eblextrade.co.uk and can also be downloaded to a mobile device for use when on the move.
