Punjab Food Authority (PFA) Director General Shoaib Khan Jadoon appreciated the Punjab Agri-culture and Meat Company (PAMCO) on Friday for providing state-of-the-art meat processing facility to citizens, including butchers.

He also appreciated PAMCO for using the latest semi-automatic meat processing plant, providing blast freezing and cold storage facility, and compliance with Halal & Food Safety Standards.

He visited the Lahore Meat Processing Complex (LMPC) of PAMCO at Shahpur Kanjra, inspected different sections of the abattoir and cold stores, and witnessed the slaughtering process.

The PFA DG said that the food authority had been accelerating the activities against illegal slaughter-houses across Punjab to ensure provision of hygienic meat. He said that the competent authority had not only been closing down illegal abattoirs but also lodging cases against the law violators.
