There is another 15% produced outside Asoprovac- is it controlled?
you're confusing Asoprovac, an industry association whose members account for "85 percent of the country's meat production industry", with the spanish regulatory agency who would be doing the testing. they would test samples from all sources of meat supplied to the spanish market, including imports. you can take that as fact, there is no way they would just test locally produced beef.

it's good that you're asking questions. but don't confuse your lack of certainty with lack of integrity in the spanish regulatory testing regime.
