Enscape Consulting were commissioned by the Scottish Government to carry out research into whether or not mobile slaughter units (MSUs) would be viable in Scotland.

This report describes the findings of the study carried out  by providing detailed research of all aspects of what would be required, including the impact mobile abattoirs would have on the viability of existing processing facilities and supply chains.

With the closure of abattoir facilities in rural areas in Scotland many animals are now having to travel further to be slaughtered and returned for processing in local businesses (butchers) than before.

The report can be accessed on the Scottish Government's website:
