Meat processors welcome FSA U-turn

The British Meat Processors Association has welcomed a Food Standards Agency (FSA) decision to scrap plans for a four per cent hike in annual inspection charges in a bid to cut government subsidies to the industry.

However, the FSA has said that a new system to calculate charges based on the length of time inspectors from the Meat Hygiene Service (MHS) spent at a facility will come into force from the end of September.
