Meat inspection service links with LGUs on slaughter upgrading

by Oliver Baccay

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Jan 23 (PIA) -- The National Meat Inspection Services (NMIS) region 2 has tied up with some local government units (LGUs) to implement slaughterhouse upgrading and meat establishments improvement program.

Cesar Zamora, chief-meat inspection division, said they implement a counterpart scheme to LGUs to enhance and improve slaughterhouses to comply with the standards for meat safety.

“We offer a counterpart scheme wherein 50 percent of the proposed fund requirement will come from us and the other 50 percent will be shouldered by the LGU proponent,” Zamora explained.

He also clarified that the slaughterhouse should have at least 25 heads of pigs slaughtered per night, and at least five to seven large animals such as cows and carabaos, and should have passed the evaluation of the inspectors especially on the cleanliness and safety requirement which assures the safety of the meats.

On the other hand, NMIS also conducted basic meat inspection training for 34 participants manning slaughterhouses. The training is aimed at imparting knowledge and orientation on proper handling technologies of slaughtered animals.

Zamora also stated that there are no double dead meats in any part of the region as per monitoring and feedback gathering of the said agency in all public markets.

NMIS is also set to conduct meat inspectors’ congress to be held in Baguio City to further improve inspectors’ performances in delivering services in the field if meat inspection. (TCB/OTB/PIA-2)
