Dunbia and Dawn Meats deal to 'better serve' farmers

Dawn Meats said it had agreed a strategic partnership with Dunbia to establish a majority owned joint venture in the UK comprising the UK operations of both organisations.

 

In Ireland, Dawn Meats will have nine facilities, including five abattoirs, following the addition of two complementary Dunbia facilities - one abattoir in Slane, and one boning hall in Kilbeggan.

 

Subject to approval by the relevant competition authorities, the new partnership will serve customers across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

 

Dawn Meats will separately take on Dunbia’s operations in Ireland.

 

Dawn Meats chief executive Niall Browne said: “Given the uncertainty posed by Brexit, this partnership should further underpin the competitiveness of both operations to the benefit of all stakeholders in the UK, Ireland and across Europe.”

 

Preparations

NFU Scotland’s livestock committee chairman Charlie Adam said the collaboration was ‘of significant size and importance’.

 

He added: “Farmers and crofters in Scotland will want the new business to work with industry in growing the reputation of Scottish beef and lamb.

 

“The presence of competitive meat processing in Scotland is vital in maintaining the viability of livestock farming across all parts of Scotland and it is important that the Scottish red meat sector is as prepared as possible for the uncertainty of Brexit.”
