DC closes Ringsted for one week.

After the first corona infections at Danish Crown in Denmark at the Ringsted site, slaughter capacity was halved at the plant last week.

Following a corona outbreak with dozens of infected employees, the slaughterhouse in Denmark is now being temporarily closed. As of today, the slaughter line will initially be at a standstill for a week. This was announced by meat processor Danish Crown.

This is an attempt to break the chain of infection within the staff. Danish Crown slaughters around 35,000 pigs a week at the Ringsted site.
