The UK meat sector is a hugely significant and important part of the food and drink industry, employing over 100,000 people in abattoirs, and meat processing and manufacturing plants. At a time when the meat processing industry is getting itself into shape for the future, selecting the right coding and marking equipment can play a significant part in ensuring that processors are ready for the opportunities lying ahead.
