Meat Packing Plant & Cold Storage
Lindon undertook, on behalf of the Amajuba District Municipality (KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa), a detailed feasibility study and the development of a business plan for the establishment of a red-meat packing plant in Newcastle.
The final outcome of the project demonstrated that while red-meat is in demand, a pre-requisite for the success of a meat packing enterprise is the establishment of a reliable supply of carcasses.
This meant that the meat packing enterprise would need to either own its own meat carcass supply chain (i.e. feedlot and/or abattoir) or develop close relationship with stakeholders in the carcasss supply chain.Potential job creation numbers ranged from 25 to 50 depending on the scale of the project.
