The biggest slaughterhouse

Dalrymple points out that the largest abattoir is in Denmark (Danish Crown’s superb facility at Horsens in east Jutland). The plant has, he writes,

become almost a tourist attraction, so clinically and reassuringly anæsthetic are its procedures.

Workers, he notes, become attached to their place of work, for it provides them not just with their livelihood but a social life:

Few are they who rejoice in their redundancy.

Olivia Mokiejewski, author of Abattoir People, which Dalrymple reviews, admits this, which, he says,

increases my esteem for her.
