The supervisor can see progress since the controls will be more and more focused on slaughterhouses that are performing poorly. Companies that a longer period of time to do well, get less visits from the inspectors.
The meat sector is the past few years, much criticism has been. As noted, the Dutch Safety Board in 2014 that the safety of the food in question was. “The government is wrongly assumed that businesses with more responsibility would take”, the board at that time.
