Tannery (Empire) is a Empire resource building in Total War: Warhammer. It is not just meat that has its uses, skins and furs do too - at the tannery.
A tannery takes the skins of animals and subjects them to a process called liming. This toughens and preserves the skin, turning it into leather. A tanner will also preserve pelts by using a salting, oiling and waxing process. The odours these processes create are vile, so tanneries are usually located downstream or in the poorest districts of a city.
