Danish Crown abattoir closed for weeks
Danish Crown says slaughterings in the Blans abattoir, damaged by fire
earlier this month, can only re-start in eight to twelve weeks
The Danish cooperative announced this after a check up. The abattoir in the
Danish town of Blans was damaged heavily by a fire on April
slaughtered pigs were lost in the blaze. The slaughterline
itself was only damaged by smoke and water.
For the moment, the
cooperative has managed to increase the capacities in other slaughterhouses
close by to keep up with demands.
In addition, about 4,000 to 6,000
animals have to be sold to German processors.
It is not known what
has caused the fire.
