DENMARK, Randers. A renewed decline in the supply of pigs for slaughter means there are no longer enough pigs to justify an evening shift for slaughtering pigs at Danish Crown’s slaughterhouse in Ringsted. As a result, 20 permanent employees will be dismissed. In addition, about 100 employees will also be stopping as their fixed-term employment contracts come to an end.
In addition to Ringsted, capacity is also being adjusted at Danish Crown’s biggest slaughterhouse in Horsens, where the number of slaughterings is being reduced from 102,000 to 98,000 pigs a week.
