Halal board bats for revisions at local slaughterhouse

Koronadal City (17 June) -- In the spirit of implementing true essence and meaning of the halal industry, ARMM's Halal Certification Board is pushing for some revisions in the operational guidelines of the slaughterhouses in Cotabato City.

According to Halal Certification Board head Dr. Norodin Kuit, the board is seriously oconsidering a move requesting the city government to make necessary changes in the operational rules and guidelines of slaughterhouses.

"Nais natin hilingin sa city government na dapat hiwalay ang kulungan at katayan ng baboy sa ibang hayop tulad ng manok, kambing, baka at kalabaw sa slaughterhouse," Kuit said.

Kuit said, based on the halal certification guidelines, hogs should be separated from other other livestock intended for slaughter.

"Hindi dapat ipagsama ang lugar ng kulungan at katayan ng baboy sa mga kambing, manok, baka at kalabaw," he said.

Once this is done, Kuit said, the Halal Certification Board would be able to fully implement the guidelines necessary for the issuance of halal certification to hotels, restaurants, refreshment parlors and other establishments engage in food manufacture/production, catering/handling/delivery services.

anwhile, the agriculture department in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) is intensifying its veterinary outreach program through free animal/livestock vaccination in various areas in the region with the onset of the rainy season. (pbc/PIA) [top]
