Meat cutter license, testing and study information

Public Health - Seattle & King County Food Code requires individuals who are engaged in cutting fresh beef, veal, lamb and/or pork within a meat establishment to obtain a personal occupational “Meat Cutter” license.

The Meat Cutter exam is a basic test designed to check for rudimentary skills of meat cutting, handling, care of meat, knowledge of sanitation and code requirements.

In preparation for the exam we can provide study information for review upon request. This material is available as reference only and may be reviewed by making an appointment with our Downtown Environmental Health office staff.
