BVA continues to push for reforms to non-stun slaughter practices in the UK

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) is continuing to push for reforms to non-stun slaughter practices.

Speaking at an event in Holyrood last week, BVA president Simon Doherty said: “While we continue to favour a complete end to non-stun slaughter, we are shifting our focus to pragmatic asks where we think there is definite scope for movement.

 

“This includes pushing for clearer slaughter method labelling to give consumers more choice about the meat they buy.”

 

Mr Doherty called for an end to the export of non-stun meat from the UK.

 

There was currently no non-stun slaughter carried out in Scotland and consumers could be confident in the welfare provenance of meat which was produced under farm assurance schemes.

“None of these across the UK permit non-stun slaughter and they are the best indicator of veterinary involvement and high welfare,” Mr Doherty added.

 

Non-stun is banned but EU and UK legislation allows an exemption for animals which are slaughtered for food intended for consumption by Jewish and Muslim communities
