Welcome to the Langford Abattoir where welfare, quality and education are at the heart of everything we do.

Constructed in 1968 as an integral part of the Meat Research Institute, the Abattoir has gone on to become a major teaching resource to students from the Universities of Bristol and Cambridge as well the Royal Veterinary College, and has become an asset to customers looking for a professional slaughter service in the South West.

Whether you are a new visitor to the site, or an existing customer, Abattoir Manager Aled Daniels and his team are on hand to discuss your requirements.
