New law aims to boost food safety in Thailand


The new Animal Slaughter and Sale of Meats Control Acts said that all slaughterhouses in Thailand must employ either veterinarians or personnel who have attended the Department of Livestock Development’s (DLD) courses. Without them slaughterhouses will be forced to close down, Dr Sorravis Thaneto, DLD’s Deputy Director General told Asian Agribiz.

The DLD will look out for animal diseases and residues of drugs such as including beta-agonist and antibiotics. Also, all slaughterhouses must clearly declare animal traceability under the new law. Dr Sorravis said the new law will be implemented at the end of this year.
