Sharing is caring!

The Bengal Government is setting up a food processing unit in Haringhata in Nadia district to process goat meat.

Keeping in view the high demand for goat meat in Bengal, this plant has been planned in order to meet the demand.

West Bengal Livestock Development Corporation is setting up the plant on a plot of 2 acres. Rs 3 crore has been sanctioned for the project.

The unit would have the capacity to process 300 goats at a time, that is, in each of the six-hour shifts. The meat would be packed in 500 gram and 1 kilogram packets. At full capacity, it is expected for the plant to produce 2.5 tonnes of packed meat per day, All India Trinamool Congress has said.

This plant is the result of the success of a pilot project through which goat meat was being sold from the Haringhata Meat outlets. After the plant becomes operational, the meat would be sold from 240 outlets across the state.
