Shetland Group joins SAMW
Shetland Livestock Marketing Group (SLMG) has become the latest company to join SAMW.
Formed in 2004 and a community-based cooperative since 2010, SLMG is to open a new £500,000 abattoir in Lerwick later this season which, says SLMG chairman Ronnie Eunson, will ‘offer all Shetland businesses a great opportunity to source local meats processed to the highest standards’.
“I’m delighted that SLMG has joined us at this important time of challenge and change for the meat sector in Scotland,” said SAMW President, Alan Craig. “The Association promotes the interests of all members, always working to secure a better future for Scotland’s world class meat industry. It’s good to have expanded the northern edge of our representation and to be able to help provide SLMG with direct input into the decision-making processes in Edinburgh, London and Brussels.”
