Food Standards Scotland (FSS) is forming its own Food Crime Unit to fight fraud and unsafe practices within the supply chain in response to the horsemeat fraud in 2013.
The standard is given to those who are able to show the origins of their food, as well as consider the environmental impacts and animal welfare.
Following recent food fraud incidents, the new standard incorporates integrity elements alongside food safety.
In an effort to assist chefs with new food labelling requirements, in particular concerning allergen rules, the NACB standard requires the butcher to correctly label their products in order to support the chef further down the line.
