‘Fast food chains may buy local pork’

Some of the fastfood chains in Negros Occidental that have stopped serving pork and pork products on their menus may tap the local market to meet their demands , Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said .

Decena met yesterday with the top officials of Jollibee, Chowking and Mang Inasal , who were amenable to the idea of sourcing local pork.

These fastfood chains have stopped importing their pork meals since the 90-day ban on the entry of pork and pork products from Luzon was imposed by the provincial government on September 11 to keep the province free from the dreaded African swine fever virus.
