RNZ – Silver Fern Farms will no longer supply offal to Gloriavale meat plant
By Niva Chittock – RNZ – 24/05/2022
Silver Fern Farms has announced it will no longer be working with the Gloriavale Christian community.
“Silver Fern Farms has decided to begin the process to discontinue any commercial arrangements with Value Proteins [Gloriavale’s trading company]. We will now be working with all parties involved to bring this into effect,” a spokesperson said.
It is believed the decision is based on the Employment Court ruling that members of the community who worked up to 70 hours a week for years, were not volunteers, and employment standards should be enforced.
Ex-resident David Ready welcomed the news.
