South Australian meat manufacturer T & R Pastoral’s decision to buy EG Green and Sons Lakes Road Abattoir in North Dandalup is good news for the state’s meat producers. T & R Pastoral announced the purchase, for around $4 million, after negotiations with administrators Ferrier Hodgson for the acquisition of the EG Green and Sons asset. In addition, T & R has agreed to spend $40 million dollars upgrading the facility to make it one of the newest and most efficient plants operating in Australia. T & R Pastoral’s investment in the Lakes Road meat works is good news for the industry in general, as it will generate competition between processors and greater choice when taking stock to market. Also, it is most positive for the local area, as the abattoir will be a significant source of employment for surrounding communities.
