MANX meat should soon be on the shelves again in Tesco.
This afternoon Isle of Man Meats, which runs the abattoir, issued a statement which reads: ‘Approval in principle has been gained from Tesco to resume supply.
‘Although no date is as yet agreed, Isle of Man Meats resolved all the outstanding technical issues several weeks ago and are now awaiting final confirmation of specifications and indication of the ranges of Manx meat Tesco wish to stock.’
Tesco stopped selling Manx meat after it raised concerns about auditing standards and the physical state of the abattoir building in February.
Manx meat should be on the shelves again in Tesco in the near future.
Six months after the supermarket stopped selling the product, citing concerns about auditing standards, Isle of Man Meats has been granted approval in principal to resume supply.
Chief executive John Dawkins says there’s never been any doubt about the quality of local produce.
