Isle of Man Meats apologises for 'stock availability issues'

Follows complaints from Island butchers over Easter

Isle of Man Meats has apologised for ‘stock availability issues’ over Easter.

It follows complaints from Island butchers who took to social media to complain about the lack of meat available.

One business in Peel described the issue as being caused by the meat plant ‘not having a skilled workforce, lack of communications between departments and no leadership’.

In response the chair of Isle of Man Meats told Manx Radio there has recently been breakdowns of equipment and, due to it being 30 years old, repairs are ‘more challenging’.

Managing Director Rebecca Miah added: "This has resulted in a slower processing time during Easter where demand is higher.

"This combination of factors has created some stock availability issues for which we can only apologise. 

"We are trying to drive change within the business and are currently reviewing our engineering, stock management and sales to create a company fit for the future, and we will try to mitigate any impact of these changes on our stakeholders as far as is possible."
