National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) Region V Regional Technical Director Fernando N. Lontoc personally visited City Mayor Patricia Gonzalez-Alsua to deliver the Certificate of Accrediation to Ligao City Slaughterhouse.
The Class “AA” Slaughterhouse at Sitio Gamot, Tinago is a facility accredited by NMIS to engage in slaughtering of hogs and cattle for domestic trade.
Because of the impressive system and approach of the LGU in operating the slaughterhouse, Dir. Lontoc sees the potential of Ligao City Slaughterhouse as a good example for other LGUs aiming to establish an accredited slaughterhouse.
The LGU assures to comply with the guidelines to maintain an accredited facility by building a stronger partnership with NMIS.
