The new standards have been devised in accordance with international rules, requirements and criteria, so the products with the Mexico Supreme Quality (MCS) label are competitive throughout the world.

With the aim of increasing the competitiveness of the food and agriculture products produced in Mexico and of offering the consumers more and more quality, harmless and healthy foods, the quality standards of 78 agricultural, livestock and aquaculture products produced in Mexico are being updated.

Among the criteria considered for the development of the standards, health and harmlessness stand out. This is, the implementation of production, handling, storage and transportation processes in order to reduce to a minimum the chance that the products become contaminated with microbiological, physical or chemical agents; or that the products become affected by pests or diseases. The standards also bear in mind the mobilisation, packing, packaging and labelling processes, as well as the use of Systems for the Reduction of Contamination Hazards and the Good Use and Handling of Agrochemicals (BUMA), with the aim of avoiding that the products contain undesirable chemical residues.

Among the updated standards we have those of products such as eggs, fowl, pork, beef, maradol papaya, table grapes, avocados, mangoes, garlic, tomatoes and asparagus.

Mexico Supreme Quality is a brand (it is property of the Federal Government, which coordinates it through the SAGARPA and the Economy Secretariat [SE]) that was created with the aim of encouraging vegetables and animal health, harmlessness and quality in food and agriculture production.
