Suffolk abattoir in receivership

By Peter Crichton

MORE bad news for Eastern region pig producers came with the announcement that the Suffolk-based abattoir, Hutsons of Beccles, had been put into administrative receivership this Friday (23 February).

A company spokesman said that for the time being they would continue to trade, but the outlook for creditors in hard to forecast.

Trade sources are expecting that Hutsons may be purchased by another East Anglian based abattoir company at a knockdown price.
