Kosher meat supplies will continue to flow into Britain from Ireland despite a major abattoir having closed its kosher facility last month.
At least two other abattoirs have been employed to make sure that kosher butchers, primarily in the London area, will be fully stocked.
Slaney Foods in County Wexford announced without warning that it was closing its kosher production plant. The company, which also supplies meat to the McDonald's chain, said the decision to close had been made after news reports that halal meat was being used in some McDonald's restaurants.
