“Dunbia’s other facilities are unaffected by this announcement and the company remains focussed on growing and developing our beef and lamb business across the UK and Ireland.”

Members of Nottinghamshire Animal Save, Manchester Pig Save and others from around Derbyshire and South Yorkshire joined to protest outside the abattoir in November against the slaughter of animals on site.
