Further details of a long- awaited new north-east abattoir will be revealed next week.
Scotbeef and ANM Group, which jointly own Scotbeef Inverurie, are hosting an exhibition at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie, on Friday, September 29, between 11am and 8pm.
Proposals to build a new abattoir and meat production facility at the Thainstone Business Park, and relocate the existing Scotbeef Inverurie facility from the town’s North Street, will be on show at the event.
Scotbeef development director Uel Morton said: “Relocation to the Thainstone Business Park Extension, an area already widely utilised by other agricultural businesses, will secure employment for the workforce, secure markets for producers and reduce livestock movements through Inverurie town centre while allowing the existing premises to be developed for residential use.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in the proposals to come along to our public exhibition, as it presents the company and its advisers with the opportunity to give local interested parties information on the proposed development.”
