Full Farm to Fork Traceability
All animals are fully traceable from birth to processing. Animals are identifiable through their double-eartags, unique passport and the national computerised Animal Identification and Movement System (AIMS) traceability system. Traceability of the carcase continues through processing, manufacturing and packing.
The Animal Identification and Movement (AIM) database is managed by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine in Ireland. This online real time database provides a full profile of every animal in every herd. It shows full details of births, sales and purchases right through to the processing stage and accurately records the length of time each animal has spent on the farm.
