Slaughterhouse upgrade okd
BY RENE GENOVE

 

Dumaguete Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo recently approved a major upgrade of the city’s slaughterhouse facility, worth P4.2 million, to meet the accreditation requirements of the National Meat Inspection Service and to better serve the public.

He also directed the procurement of necessary equipment to improve the availability of adequate water supply for the facility.

For the first time in many years, the city’s slaughterhouse is undergoing major rehabilitation to replace the old roof, flooring, and walls.

If accredited, all meat products processed in the city’s abattoir can be supplied throughout the country, and this could increase the income from the facility.

City Economic Enterprise officer Jose Ronnie Fortin said that, at present, the slaughterhouse processes an average 200 heads of hogs, 30 heads of goats, and 20 large animals, such as cows, carabaos, and horses daily.

He reminded the public that all livestock for human consumption must be processed in the slaughterhouse to ensure that they passed the inspection and quality control, otherwise, the meat products will be seized and destroyed.*
