In the challenging industry of lamb and beef production, there is one principle upon which the foundations of Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef are built – to deliver on what it promises. This simple ethic has led to being awarded the coveted PGI status by the EU, which has propelled the Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef brands to the forefront of a dynamic industry.
Discover how PGI status can help you and your customers.
Love for the land
Our farmers are famous all over the world for producing distinctive, world-class tasting lamb and beef. The environment in which their livestock are raised plays an extremely important part in producing this succulent, sweet and tender meat. The unique, ancient landscape of Wales is perfectly suited to sheep and cattle farming, and it’s the first step to achieving PGI status.
Building on traditions
For centuries, native sheep breeds have thrived on the natural grassland available all year round. Traditional husbandry methods and breeding expertise in one of the most unspoilt corners of the world produces lamb of the highest quality.
Authenticity & traceability
