Choice of ink is an important factor in marking Pigs, through extensive live animal trials, this new Food Grade slapper tattoo ink has been developed, conforming to current food legislation.
Whilst there is no legislation governing the marking inks used on a live pig, that ink may still be in the skin when the animal has been passed for human consumption as consumable meat, therefore should conform to the current food legislation.
As soon as an animal becomes meat, the ink used to mark the carcass must conform to hygiene regulations. bear it in mind that the tattoo ink may be consumed with the meat, and many tattoo inks contain animal fats obtained outside the EU. Therefore to ensure no risk of disease contamination only use a fully Food Grade slapper tattoo ink.
This Ink has a shelf life of 24 months.
