New slaughterhouse for southern Vermont set to open

Published: March 17, 2010 in

WESTMINSTER (AP) — A new state-of-the-art slaughterhouse that will serve farmers in southern Vermont is set to open next month in Westminster. State agriculture officials say Westminster Meats is waiting for a key piece of machinery.

Randy Quenneville of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture says the facility will become Vermont’s seventh red-meat slaughterhouse. It will also be able to process poultry. It still needs to receive final approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Westminster Meats is owned by Dan Mandich of Walpole, N.H.

The slaughterhouse expects to create 15 jobs.
