Authorities in Ntungamo district have moved towards improving meat safety and quality.

Dr.Yaake Basulira, the Ntungamo district veterinary officer said the quality of meat, especially beef, which is consumed in large quantities, can only be guaranteed when the authorities and veterinary workers work together.

Basulira revealed that the district has received six meat inspection kits and laboratory equipment, among others, from the ministry of agriculture to support them in ensuring quality meat.

Sam Muchunguzi Rwakigoba, the LC V chairperson Ntungamo district urged the veterinary workers to ensure that the equipment is put to good use since it is vital and expensive.

Muchunguzi added that acquiring modern equipment will help ensure that people eat safe meat and address the challenges of consuming contaminated meat.
