Dawn Meats has expanded its West Country presence with the acquisition of a beef processing site in Cornwall.

The Jaspers beef abattoir and boning facility in Terburley will complement Dawn’s existing processing site in Devon.

“The reputation and demand for high-quality West Country beef is growing both within Britain and indeed across Europe,” said Niall Browne, CEO of Dawn Meats.

Dawn looked forward to continuing to work with farmers in Cornwall and across the South West to promote the “excellent product” to both new and existing customers, he added.

The Jasper family and staff, who have done business with Dawn Meats for many years, will remain with the business.

“We are pleased that Dawn has decided to invest in Cornwall and we are confident they will continue our tradition of providing great service to both our farmers and our customers,” said director David Jasper.
