'Handy having a lot of good skills' - Cross Hands butcher

If the butchers at Castell Howell Foods cut the carcasses badly, it also means a cut in profits.

The company has been going for more than 30 years and is one of the biggest employers in the area.

Its new butchery facility at Cross Hands, Carmarthenshire, has been operating for just over a year and skills are a prime focus.

Staff are trained on the premises but also study at training centres as part of their NVQ qualifications.

Apprentice Dewi Davies, 19, and Edward Morgan, butchery director, spoke to BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan.
