What Do We Do?

We negotiate constructively with UK and European legislators and influencers to ensure our members can operate in a fair and consistent market across the UK, Europe and worldwide.

We advise our members on the legislative requirements for animal by-products, food safety, environment, energy and health and safety. We devise industry guidance and best practice for our members by sharing and discussing common issues.

We are members of the European Fat Processors & Renders Association (EFPRA) and represent our members at EFPRA Council and Technical meetings. We are also members of the World Rendering Association (WRO).

Who Are We?

FABRA UK is the Foodchain and Biomass Renewables Association, representing the majority of the UK animal by-products processing industry in their dealings with a range of stakeholders.

What Do Our Members Do?

FABRA UK’s members are responsible for processing the majority of UK meat industry’s waste which amounts to nearly 2 million tonnes per year. They primarily create value from the rendering of animal by-products, providing essential food and biosecurity services to produce a variety of useful, low carbon footprint products.

Our members employ over 2,000 staff in the UK and are committed to the promotion of biosecurity in a low-carbon Foodchain. They have collectively invested £57 million in capital investment with a further £37 million forecast by 2020.

Our members also provide essential secure disease control and waste disposal services to Government and its agencies during animal disease outbreaks.
