HSA Webinar

21 April 2021

The HSA is holding a webinar on Wednesday 28th April from 3.00 pm to highlight the current decline in the network of small- to medium-sized, multi-species abattoirs, and discuss how a reliable supply of locally-produced meat can be achieved practically, while maintaining and improving high standards of animal welfare. 

A panel will include speakers from the Food Standards Agency, the Abattoir Sector Group and the Sustainable Food Trust will give talks followed by a Q&A session. 

Potential solutions include the establishment of new local abattoirs, or pop-up or mobile slaughter facilities which can be relocated to meet demand.  Details of recent developments of mobile slaughter units in the Netherlands will be included in the presentations.

It is likely that in many cases slaughtering animals locally will have welfare benefits, but this seminar will also examine whether there may be any welfare risks in increasing the number of small, local slaughter facilities.  You can find out more and register here.
