The British Game Alliance is delighted to announce that they will now be working with SAI Global to audit and carry out assessments on registered shoots and game farms. SAI Global is the leading provider of assurance scheme services working with major schemes such as Red Tractor and LEAF Marque. The team at SAI Global have experienced and knowledgeable assessors and will provide the highest possible standard of audit, helping improve the standard of game production throughout our sector.
Liam Stokes, Chief Executive of the BGA said:
“We are delighted to start work with such a well-respected Certification Body. We have no doubt this new partnership will drive confidence in the BGA Assurance Scheme, both for the shoots that sign up to our Standards and the supermarkets and stockists who want to sell game they know has been subject to credible assurance.”
Sarah Cunningham, Agriculture Manager UK & I for SAI Global said
“With an experienced team of assessors who are committed and passionate about the countryside, SAI Global look forward to delivering a robust and highly valuable scheme for the BGA.”
The British Game Alliance was set up to promote, develop and assure the production and harvest of game meat, whether for sale or personal consumption. Shoots and Game Farms who register with the BGA are showing that they adhere to the highest welfare and environmental standards. By embracing the BGA Standards they are ensuring traceability within the food chain from egg to plate.
The BGA Assurance scheme is a tool through which shoots can say with confidence that they are abiding by best practice, a tool so credible the logo appears on game meat sold in major supermarkets. The more shoots that sign up to BGA Assurance, the safer shooting becomes from future regulation, and SAI will assist the BGA in achieving this goal.
