12 June 2018

Article: 52/2306

Phase one of the UK-wide review into meat cutting plants and cold stores launched by Food Standards Scotland (FSS) and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in March is now complete (see current note 52/0903).

Phase one includes:

  • an analysis of the current state of this part of the industry
  • a comparison of arrangements in place across the four countries involved (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and England)
  • identification of potential emerging areas for improvement

The review has now moved to phase two where more detailed work will identify and assess options for improvement, develop recommendations and outline a plan for delivery. 

The final report and recommendations will be published in September 2018.
