Ludhiana, February 26
The Municipal Corporation (MC) has started operations of its modernised slaughter house at Haibowal Dairy Complex. Stating this, senior veterinary officer of the MC, Dr Harbans Singh Dhalla, said the slaughter house had been modernised with latest machineries.
He said the Veterinary Service Health Branch of the civic body had geared up to provide disease-free, hygienic and safe mutton, poultry and pig meat to the public.
Dr Dhalla said the Modernised Slaughter House had separate “halal” and “jhatka” mutton halls. He said in-house mechanised poultry dressing line was the first of its kind in the state in government sector.
He said, “The the civic body has provided five modern air conditioned Bolero jeeps (Reefer Vans) to the service providers of the modern slaughter house so that they can supply meat to the shop owners if the shop owners opted for the transportation of meat from slaughterhouse to their meat shop. Online services have been provided by the company through website – www.slaughterhouse.biz. Hence, meat sellers should book their slots in advance for their own convenience.”
He said, “Five shops have been set up for the retailing of meat to the public at highest hygienic standards. These are located at the dairy complex on Hambraan Road, Gill Road and Fire Brigade Complex near the bus stand, Metro Road Jamalpur and Middha Chowk. Four shops have been handed over to the service provider, while the fifth is under process.”
Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu appealed to all meat shops owners to bring sheep, goat and poultry for safe and hygiene slaughtering at the modern slaughter house of the civic body. Meanwhile, it is learnt that the MC is yet to set up a required rendering plant. —TNS
