QUARISMA (QUAlity and RISk MAnagement) will introduce the techno-managerial approach, which aims at integrating the different disciplines to contribute to achieve superior quality. In order to achieve the overall objectives, three research priority areas have been identified. 1. Chain management 2. Quality and information management 3. Risk management and food safety The project has six work packages with each package comprising different tasks covering the theoretical framework.

Changes in consumer's behaviour and technological advances of the industrial food production need innovative quality strategies. Especially the pork sector has implemented new innovative quality strategies for convenient products in recent times. For this reason, the role of quality management methods within the pork value chain is more and more important. To emphasize the customer-supplier perspective Six Sigma is promising in quality management decisions of pork producers. Six Sigma is a method of quality management to improve the performance of processes in a structurized way. In the present study the optimization potential of the Six Sigma concept in standardized industrial processes of pork production are evaluated designing a structured Six Sigma approach for this purpose. Optimization potential of the supplier customer processes between pig farms and a meat processor is outlined and also suitable QM tools are selected and adopted to the demand of 'bio' processes. An intensive collaboration and communication between stages of production is a critical success factor for supply chain management from the farm to the consumer.
