Industrial Meat Cutters, Butchers, Poultry Preparers & Related Jobs NOC 9462

Friday, February 11, 2011

Don't you know that a meat cutter is a registered trade?

A meat cutter prepares meat or poultry for further processing, for packaging or for marketing and can either be a retail meat cutter or an industrial meat cutter.

Retail meat cutters can found from a small-family owned meatshop common on wet markets or those on supermarket chains. Industrial meat cutters are those who worked in production-oriented facilities, and generally perform fewer but repeated tasks.
