Botswana National Beef Producers Union (BNBPU), the cattle producers’ apex body, has applauded a decision by the government to commercialise the Botswana Meat Commission (BMC) as a business entity jointly owned by the government and the farmers.

The Union believes that the policy would bring about the much-needed changes necessary not only to improve producer prices but to also ensure the long-term sustainability of Botswana’s livestock and cattle industry.

In addition, they noted that the establishment of an independent livestock and meat regulatory body to handle the licencing of abattoirs, including export abattoirs would give the necessary comfort and impetus for investment in the industry.
