Northern Quality Meats Ltd. knows how to recycle. It developed a licensed composting facility to compost abattoir wastes for a provincially licensed and inspected abattoir. The innovation has allowed continued operation of this producer-owned and operated business, offering an option for area farmers to process their livestock locally. Composting abattoir by-products is more environmentally sustainable, more energy efficient, eliminates odour and the need for storage, and contributes to the sustainability of the operation.
