Dads mull regulation of mini-wet markets

CITY COUNCILOR Maria Lourdes Gaane, chair of the City Council committee on health and sanitation and health insurance, requested Dr. Perla Asis, chair of the TWG of Meat Inspection Code, to look into the possibility of including in the proposed code the provisions regulating the satellite markets or mini wet markets in the city.

This, after the committee recently discussed the problem of Talipapa meat vendors which was raised during the discussions on the proposed ordinance providing for the Meat Inspection Code of Cagayan de Oro City of 2018.

It may be recalled that representatives of City Slaughterhouse manifested that the operations of mini-wet markets greatly affect the income of the meat vendors at Cogon and Carmen Markets. The flea markets also cause sanitation problem.

However, in the committee meeting, Romeo Cuizon, president of Carmen Market Meat Section vendors group, said the meat vendors inside all public markets are complying with the requirements set by the City Veterinary Office and the National Meat Inspection Services such as proper food handling.
