Notice: Red Cross Permit extended

16 Aug 2019

Meatco would like to inform its valued producers that the Red Cross Permit status restriction under which the Windhoek Abattoir has been operating is extended and ongoing.

This is due to another load received from the surveillance zone. Please note that we expect this situation to continue until the end of October 2019.

In addition, animals sent back to the establishment of origin by the Directorate of Veterinary Services would result in its closure and placement under quarantine for at least 30 days.

Should there be any changes, we will inform producers accordingly.

Meatco, therefore, urges producers to continue adhering to the conditions on the Sales Advice with all required documentation accompanying the cattle delivered to the export abattoir.

Meatco thanks producers for their continued unwavering support.
