New UNECE Standards Edible Meat Co-Products Edible meat co-products: The Section proposed a new name to identify the standard, since this name is defined as animal products other than red or white muscles, allowing the grouping of the terms offal, fancy meats, variety meats and edible by-products in one single concept. The Standard was amended to add blood products and pork items (Currently, the standard includes more than 100 items from bovine, veal, ovine, caprine and porcine). The Specialized Section submitted to the Working Party the amended texts on edible meat co-products for adoption as new UNECE standard.
