A number of cattle slaughterhouses to be launched
HCM City plans to construct several modern livestock and poultry slaughterhouses this year, in addition to facilities being opened by private firms.
From now to September 2019, the city will open six modern industrial-scale cattle slaughterhousees, which will have a total capacity of 13,000 animals per day.
Hoc Mon District will have two slaughterhouses, including the Xuan Thoi Thuong and Tan Hiep Food Processing Plants, with capacity of 2,000 and 3,000 animals per day, respectively.
Cu Chi District will have four facilities in Tan Thanh commune with capacity of 2,000 animals per day, Tan Phu Trung commune with capacity of 3,000 animals per day, one on Vo Van Bich street with capacity of 2,000 animals per day and another in Phuoc Thanh commune with capacity of 1,000 animals per day.
In addition, Vissan Joint Stock Company will open one slaughterhouse in their food processing industrial complex in Ben Luc District in Long An Province, with capacity of 2,500 to 4,000 animals per day.
When these slaughterhouses are put into use, the city will shut all traditional slaughterhouses where hygiene standards are often flaunted. Particularly, Trung Tuyen slaughterhouse located in Can Gio District continues to operate to serve the needs of local people.
The city now has 11 slaughterhouses with total capacity of 6,330 pigs and 82,000 poultry per day.

The city expects that by 2020 the total capacity of these plants will reach 15,530 pigs, 300,000 poultry and 300 cows per day.
