Meat plants on high alert following Covid-19 outbreaks

The message from British Meat Processing Association chief executive Nick Allen came as a number of meat plants were forced to close due to Covid-19 outbreaks among employees.

 

Kober, in West Yorkshire, owned by Asda since 2016, temporarily ceased production on Monday June 15 after more than 100 workers were identified as ‘contacts’ through the mobile test and trace scheme.

 

2 Sisters Food Group also suspended production at its Llangefni site, Anglesey, Wales, last week with more than 100 workers self-isolating from the virus. It is set to reopen on July 14, with production transferred to other company locations for the 14-day period.

 

Tulip voluntarily suspended exports from its site in Tipton in the West Midlands after 10 workers tested positive for the virus.
