Aids to Private Storage - Inspections
Aids to Private Storage allows abattoirs through contracts with the RPA, to slaughter beef, sheep and pigs and store the meat for a period of 3, 4 or 7 months. Storage costs are met by the UK government.
The Meat and Livestock Inspectors visit premises to:
- inspect abattoirs and cold stores on companies receiving aid for storage, ensuring controls are met; and
- inspect a minimum 10% of all wholesale contracts.
Findings are reported to the RPA
