Meat was the byproduct of animal flesh consumed by some humans. It was normally treated and processed inside abattoirs. Meat was used inside pies, pasties, burgers and as pizza toppings. Harwood's Haulage employed vans to transport meat. Harries & Harries sold meat off their "Cash Cow" while keeping the sentient creature alive. Owen Harper mercy killed it, and Torchwood Three then incinerated the body to prevent any further meat from being sold. (TV: Meat)
