Naga City’s slaughterhouse gets accreditation from NMIC
The slaughterhouse owned by the City Government of Naga has been granted with Double A accreditation by the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIC).
Mayor John Bongat said that the accreditation to the Naga City Abattoir is the “highest of its kind” in Bicol Region.
The city government said that Class AA accreditation means that the abattoir can now transport their meat outside the province.
Meanwhile, Mayor Bongat also hailed the accreditation by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to the City College of Naga to offer slaughtering courses.
“Two Firsts! THANKS NMIS and TESDA for the accreditation given to the Naga City Abattoir as a “AA” (double A) slaughterhouse, the highest of its kind in Bicol, and for the accreditation of the city-owned City College of Naga together with the Naga City Abattoir as the only TESDA competency assessment center for Slaughtering Operations for both swine (NC II) and large animal (NC II) in the entire Bicol region,” Mayor Bongat said.
“Congrats to the GMP Team for a job well done!,” he added.
Mayor Bongat led the unveiling of the License to Operate marker of the Naga City Abattoir last February 19.
Moreover, the mayor also led unveiling of marker at the City Government of Naga acknowledging the formal turn-over of TESDA accreditation to the school to offer slaughtering courses.
