    Ex-Anglo abattoir complex in Fray Bentos joins Unesco's World Heritage List

    Liebig Extract of Meat Co. exported meat extract and corned-beef to Europe from 1865 and the Anglo Meat Packing Plant frozen meat from 1924.

    UNESCO's World Heritage Committee approved the inscription of four cultural sites on the World Heritage List: Fray Bentos Cultural-Industrial Landscape in Uruguay; Japan’s Meiji Industrial Revolution: Iron and Steel, Shipbuilding and Coal Mining in Japan, Ephesus in Turkey and Aqueduct of Padre Tembleque Hydraulic System in Mexico. The Committee also approved the extension of Spain’s Routes of Santiago de Compostela with the addition of the “Camino Francés and Routes of Northern Spain”.
