Pig Producers Hardship Support Scheme

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

The Scottish Government is offering emergency funding to support pig producers affected by the temporary closure of the Quality Pork Processors (QPP) pig abattoir at Brechin due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak on site in January 2021.

The deadline to apply is 26 September 2021.

Am I eligible?

Yes, if you are a pig producer who supplied QPP Brechin and were paid £15 less per pig by QPP between 8 February and 31 March.

Who is this for?

Pig producers who supplied the QPP abattoir at Brechin between 8 February and 31 March 2021.

How long does this take?

The deadline to apply is 26 September 2021.

Important information

Funding will be calculated on a case by case basis, based on the number of pigs sold through the Quality Pig Processors plant at Brechin between 8 February and 31 March 2021. 

You will need to provide supporting evidence that you sent your animal to QPP Brechin in this time period – that is, scanned copies of your animal kill sheets.
