Quality Control Matters

 Technology alone will not be enough to solve the challenges of the next 100 years. The tools of the future must be grounded in the limits of a finite planet. They must work with the complexity of the natural systems that produce our food. They must be developed with real users, in relentless pursuit of usability. This why we strongly believe and base our business in real beef inspectors with proof background in the meat industry.

The need of a great Quality Control Service:

Global Beef production is forecast nearly 2 percent higher year-over-year to 61.5 million tons in 2021 as output in Canada, India, and the United States rebounds after COVID-19-related
processing disruptions impacted slaughter in 2020. Global Beef Exports are forecast up just over 2 percent to 11.1 million tons as Brazil, India,
and U.S. exports will more than offset the declines from Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand.

Global Pork production is forecast 5 percent higher in 2021 to 101.5 million tons as China and Vietnam recover from the impacts of African swine fever (ASF). And Global Pork exports are forecast to decline 1 percent to 11.5 million tons from the 2020 record as import demand from China slows and more than offsets growth from the rest of the world.

Global Chicken production is forecast 1 percent higher year-over-year in 2021 to a record 102.1 million tons. Global Chicken exports are forecast 1 percent higher in 2021 to a record 12.0 million tons.

Total Beef + Pork + Chicken production: 265.1 million tons forecast in 2021.

Total Beef + Pork + Chicken exports: 34.6 million tons forecast in 2021.

Meat suppliers and importers community deserve technology that is second to none.

It’s an industry with some of the most interesting, complex problems, and we need the best people and tools to solve them.

With meat prices in some cases at levels never seen before, even above USD 4000 per MT, why exposing the value of an FCL (approx. Usd 100,000) when you can almost eliminate the risk for less than 0,3% of the value.

At UBI, we plan to play a part in making this community hugely successful as the quality of our products depends on it.

% of companies that would hire a QC if it was affordable

Companies with gross revenue less than 1M:


The numbers speak by themselves: if the price is right, more and more people would hire an QC.


We conducted a survey among our clients in the meat sector and this is what they said to us:

  1. Suppliers have stopped selling/offering to a customer who has claimed from them
  2. Clients stopped buying from a supplier after realized that they haven’t received what they ordered
  3. Clients have stopped selling to a specific destination in order to avoid claims
  4. Sales have been cancelled when clients take a closer look at the supplier's internal quality procedures
