Irish food group Dawn Meats has expanded its presence in the UK by acquiring the Jasper beef abattoir and boning facility in Treburley, Cornwall, from the Jasper family for an undisclosed sum. The plant can slaughter up to 1000 cattle per week, of which a high percentage are directly transferred into the cutting room. Unprocessed meat is sold directly from the abattoir as sides or quarters of beef.

David Jasper says: “We have known and done business with Dawn Meats for many years. We are pleased that Dawn has decided to invest inCornwalland we are confident they will continue our tradition of providing great service to both our farmers and our customers.”

Niall Browne, chief executive of Dawn Meats, says: “Dawn Meats is pleased that the Jasper family and staff will remain with the business, which is well invested and operates to the highest standards. It is also highly complementary to our existing abattoir in Devon.”

Dawn Meats was established in 1980 as a family enterprise and has grown to become the supplier of choice for customers of Irish and British meat. It has multiple sites in the UK and Ireland and one in France. Dawn Meats’ product portfolio spans all beef and lamb cuts, through fresh and frozen beef patties to fully cooked ready to heat meal solutions.

A €1 billion turnover business, it has 2,700 employees. Dawn Meats has four primary processing plants in Ireland in Mayo, Laois, Cork, Waterford and six primary processing facilities in the UK, located in Bedfordshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Ayrshire in Scotland, Devon and now in Cornwall. It also has a state -of-the-art retail and foodservice packing facility in Carmarthenshire Wales and two foodservice and frozen patty sites in Waterford, Ireland.
