European Beef from Spain is known for its excellent quality due to the precise and strict European Production Model which outlines Animal Health and Feeding Regulations, Animal Welfare, Sustainability and Respect for the Environment, and Traceability and Food Safety measures. The solely grain-fed beef is classified based on age of the animal and sold in a variety of food-grade cuts. Beef produced in the EU is also hormone-free and reared sustainably to promote food security within the European Union and abroad. Europe and Spain follow stringent checking systems all along the production process from farm to table which assures that the best beef reach the consumers’ plate.
