Quality Assurance


Highland Game is a member of SQWV.

SQWV stands for 'Scottish Quality Wild Venison', and is the industry's own safeguard that the meat that reaches the consumer has been procured and handled to the highest standards every step of the way - from 'hill to plate'. This scheme assists suppliers with best practice training and larder management within a food industry framework.

BRC Global Standards

Highland Game is British Retail Consortium (BRC) Food Safety Standard Grade AA certified.

BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification programme. The Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. BRC Global Standards are a fundamental requirement of leading retailers.


Highland Game is audited by many retailers we supply. We are also regularly audited by independent third party auditor services. 

Audits play a key role in verifying proper food safety practices. Audit report data is produced to present non-biased, accurate actionable facts to monitor food safety practices. Audits demonstrate industry established criteria and retailer specific requirements to validate internal policies and procedures.
