‘It will take months to work through backlog’ – Kepak


Kepak has claimed that it will “take months” to work through the backlog of cattle for slaughtering, due to the protests at various meat plants around the country.

In a statement, Kepak Group said it was “extremely concerned” over the backlog of both cattle and sheep, claiming that, by the end of this week, there will be 100,000-cattle backlog in the market, which, it says, is increasing by around 6,000 animals per day.

“It will take months to work through the backlog as the market preference will be for under 30-month cattle when processing recommences,” the statement said.
