Burford meat packer fined $3,750

Thomas Greenwood and his business, Greenwood Meats of King Street, Burford, have been fined $3,750 after they were found packing meat without a licence.

Investigators from the Brant County Health Unit and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs caught him with 330 pounds of ready-to-eat meat that had been prepared in a facility that was not licenced.

Burford has a bad reputation for meat packing. It’s where Richard “Butch” Claire was caught butchering deadstock.
