Canadian Beef Grading Agency

The Canadian Beef Grading Agency (CBGA) is accredited by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to assess grades in accordance with Canada’s national standards.  The grading system functions to facilitate marketing and production decisions and to achieve greater consistency and predictability in eating quality.

In addition to grading, the CBGA is involved in certification of brands, such as those for beef produced from a specific breed of cattle.  This independent verification assures buyers that the standards for Canadian branded beef programs are being fully satisfied.
