Bahrain fresh meat supplies threat
Manama, February 6, 2014
Bahrain has enough fresh meat for the next three days, and will totally depend on import of frozen meat after that, sources said.
This is due to directives from the veterinary directorate at the Municipalities and Urban Planning Affairs Ministry to ban import of livestock from Djibouti and Somalia, despite the country running out of live sheep and a ban on import from Australia, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej , describing the information as “accurate and irrefutable”.
Why has the Bahrain Livestock Company been ordered to deal with only parties approved by the ministry? the sources wondered.
“Why does the import licence stipulate the company must deal with a specific quarantine while this company has been operating for more than 30 years? Why this flagrant interference in the company’s affairs and who is benefiting from such interference? Who benefits from the company’s destruction?” they added. - TradeArabia News Service
