Tractor power for Janan

Janan Meats is claiming to be the first independently owned abattoir in the Halal red meat sector to be assured under the Red Tractor scheme.

The West Midlands-based abattoir was established in 1993 to process sheep from across the region for the growing Muslim community.

Managing director Naved Syed said: "Gaining Red Tractor accreditation is a major element of our business plan. By investing in our business, from the farm through to the abattoir, we are ensuring that the meat we produce is of the highest quality, from animals that have been raised and transported to high welfare standards.

"The Red Tractor is an independently assured standard recognised by millions of consumers as a badge of quality and integrity and we at Janan Meats are honoured to have achieved the standard."
