$15 million Investment in Slaughterhouse Announced

The cattle farming union of Nicaragua is to issue shares of a corporation that will build a slaughterhouse and has customers in Taiwan, Canada and the United States.

Monday, October 1, 2012

The slaughterhouse, whose construction is valued at about $15 million, will have the capacity to process about 500 cattle per shift per day, in an area of about twenty hectares.

According to the president of the Federation of Livestock of Nicaragua (FAGANIC), Solon Guerrero, the slaughterhouse will be the fifth building in Nicaragua authorized to export meat, and will join San Martín or Nandaime, MACESA or Central, Nuevo Carnic and Novaterra .

'We've had meetings with Taiwanese Canadian and United States businessmen, and we have secured these markets (for export). And although the local industry say that there's no room for a fifth slaughterhouse, we believe that there is'”, said Guerrero to El Nuevo Diario.
