MLC Meat Map Puts You in the Picture

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the latest wall map of the UK red meat and livestock industry speaks volumes!

It has been produced by the Meat and Livestock Commission's (MLC) Economics department and provides a comprehensive picture of the structure of the industry.

First produced in 1999 it has been completely redrawn to reflect the many important changes since then.

The new map shows and classifies by size and type all abattoirs, livestock auction markets and wholesale markets known to be operating throughout the UK. Significant processing companies engaged in boning, cutting, retail packing, catering butchery or processing meat and recipe products are also named.

Other features include comprehensive coverage of the significant UK-based international meat traders and wholesalers. By-products processors and main livestock procurement groups are included. Inset maps show the density of breeding animals.

All this information is presented on a background that marks counties, unitary authorities and the boundaries of rural development agency regions.

The full colour map is laminated for durability and is an essential reference and planning aid for everyone who needs a clear view of the UK's red meat industry structure.
