Duck standards guide

Get in touch

With a specific focus on duck production, processing and retail, this guide sets out the scheme rules, the silver, gold and platinum grading levels and the certification process. It also provides the technical requirements and guidance notes by grading level for the following areas:

  • Breeder layer and breeder rearer
  • Hatchery and duckling transport
  • Duck grower standards
  • Catching, transport, lairage and slaughter standards
  • The social module, which is a bolt-on for sites wishing to attain platinum level

The scheme has a holistic approach covering traceability, bird health, worker welfare, environmental management and more, which helps organisations to demonstrate best practice to customers and consumers.
