El Salvador: Modernization of Pork Farms Pushed
The ASOPORC endeavors to modernize the majority of the 100,000 farms in the nation in order to improve meat quality.
Monday, June 22, 2009
According to studies by the Salvadorian Association of Pig Farms (ASOPORC), the hog produced in farms with modernized processes "is a muscular, more slender animal that produces fat free meat free with more nutritious qualities," and, therefore, the modernization of farms is viewed as a "goal for the pork market."
The Salvadoran Ministry of Livestock has closed the borders to Guatemalan pork due to an outbreak of classical swine fever in that country.
It will be compliant with U.S. sanitary regulations, as no human will contact the pigs in any part of the process.
The first two months of next year could see the beginning of construction work on a pork processing plant.
Company Industrias de la Carne acquired an 18–block lot in the municipality of San Matías, La Libertad.
