John Mettrick is a small scale Peak District abattoir owner, who slaughters, processes and delivers all his meat in-house. He spoke about the need for a network of numerous small scale, local abattoirs in the UK as one of the essential pillars in a resilient, sustainable and high welfare food system.
He says, ‘if one had COVID in a small plant, you would lose one small plant, the others could pick up the slack. Whilst in situations where you have massive plants the whole system goes down’.
