Urgent Notice: Misuse of slaughter bookings

20 Jun 2019

Special notice from the Executive: Livestock Procurement, Andre Mouton.

Meatco has a merit point system in place which regulates the flow of animals to Meatco facilities.  This system is accepted by producers as a fair one. 

The problem however is that certain producers with very good merit points misuse the system and are selling/giving their bookings to other producers who under normal circumstances would have to wait their turn like everyone else.

As a result, Meatco implemented with immediate effect (20/06/2019) to regard all deliveries that belongs to a third party as a no show and will thus be penalised as such on their merit point.

We believe that this move will give hope to those producers on the long unallocated waiting list that honestly await their turn as per merit point.
