Although the meat industry in Nepal is a billion rupee industry, it has its flaws. The meat we are consuming is one of the most unsafe and unhygienic food items sold in the market.

BHAKTAPUR, Feb 2: Most slaughterhouses in Bhaktapur Municipality are found to be unhygienic in view of consumer’s health.

DHADING, April 19: Although the transaction of livestock is allowed, it is not legal to give any kind of torture to animals while taking them from one place to another. However, buffaloes and goats that are delivered to Kathmandu and other cities from Dhading are treated inhumanely by traders.

KATHMANDU, Sept 22: The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development on Friday prohibited four slaughterhouses in Lalitpur district to supply meat to the market for failing to meet minimum standards set by the Animal Slaughterhouse and Meat Inspection Act.

MYAGDI, March 26: Taking bath in Kaligandaki and Myagdi rivers was not a matter of hesitation for Bikram Shrestha. A resident of Beni Municipality, he would cherish the opportunity. However, that is no more the case.

MYAGDI, Sept 27: A recent inspection has revealed that most slaughterhouses in Beni, the district headquarters of Myagdi, are playing with the health of the people by selling unhygienic and inedible meat. The selling of rotten and stale meat has been on the rise with the start of Dashain, the greatest festival of Hindus.

KATHMANDU, April 5: The animal slaughterhouses in Kathmandu Valley are not operating with standard health measures and have been deemed harmful to public health.
