Fire-hit Brechin abattoir to re-open in mid-November

2nd Nov 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Quality Pork Ltd's (QPL) Brechin abattoir is due to re-open in mid-November following a three-a-half month closure due to a major fire.

The abattoir, which was only officially opened for business in September 2016, following a £10 million refurbishment, incurred extensive fire and smoke damage during the early hours of August 5.

Although the return to normal working is expected to take a few days, it’s anticipated that throughout will be back up to its normal 6000/pigs/week during November.
