Processors & suppliers
If you are a processor or supplier and are keen to make use of the differentiation created by the newly published PGIs for West Country Beef and West Country Lamb, simply contact one of the inspection bodies listed on this website and arrange for a visit to your premises to verify your application to become an approved supplier.
Benefits of being part of this initiative:
- Born and raised in the West Country
- Totally assured supply chain

A number of suppliers have already successfully completed the audit process to enable them to use the PGI to market West Country beef and lamb. Click here to see the list of approved suppliers.
If you are a member of AHDB Beef & Lamb’s Quality Standard Mark (QSM) Scheme and your QSM beef and lamb is from the West Country you will also be able to utilise the West Country Beef and West Country Lamb logos and the PGI logo, offering an additional benefit to your customers.
If you are an approved supplier of West Country beef and/or lamb please complete the membership declaration form below for administrative purposes and to ensure we have a detailed record of all stockists.
Furthermore, please encourage all your customers of West Country beef or lamb to sign the declaration form to become approved members of the West Country supply chain and so that we can keep them up to date with any further scheme developments and support available.
