The British Meat Producers Association (BMPA) said that producers have started transporting carcasses abroad to be cut and packed, due to the current shortage of butchers in Britain.
And the association added, in a tweet on Twitter: “Last September, the BMPA informed Trans.INFO (which specializes in transport and logistics) that a shortage of labor in Britain may force meat producers to transport carcasses abroad to be cut and prepared before transporting them again. Others are to the UK for sale. This process is currently underway.”
Britain has recently been suffering from a severe shortage of labor against the backdrop of the Corona virus pandemic and the exodus of workers abroad due to Britain’s exit from the European Union.
According to BMPA estimates, the scale of the shortfall is about 10,000 butchers, and it takes 18 months to train and hire a fully qualified butcher.
