Verified Beef Production™

Confidence in the safety of Alberta beef

The Verified Beef Production program makes it simple for Alberta beef producers to show their commitment to food safety. The VBP program is based on a series of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) designed to reduce or eliminate the possibility of a food safety concern on a beef cattle operation. These SOP's are based on internationally-recognized Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principals and the VBP program is recognized by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Producers wanting to apply for the Growing Forward 2 Food Safety Systems Producer program need to be enrolled in a commodity-specific On-Farm Food Safety program. That means for beef producers, you need to complete the Verified Beef Production program training. Training is available through either an in-person workshop or our on-line training.
