FSA: Restrictions on Aberystwyth meat processor lifted

The Food Standards Agency has announced that is has lifted the suspension against Farmbox Meats Ltd near Aberystwyth. They say the decision means they can now operate under 'conditional approval.'

The decision to restrict work at the plant was made in February at the height of the horse meat scandal. The owner of Farmbox Meats has always denied any wrongdoing.

The FSA has required the establishment to provide guarantees before allowing it to operate again and has also informed the business that it will not hesitate to withdraw its approval if there is sufficient evidence that there is non-compliance with all requirements placed on food business operators.
