THE Davao City Veterinarian’s Office (CVO) conducted the first ever meat handling seminar for Hotels and Restaurants, catering services, hospitals and infirmaries, and food chains on Wednesday.
CVO Meat, Livestock and Fish Inspection Division Head Dr. Clarita Tellano said in an interview with Sun.Star Davao Wednesday morning that they held the seminar afternoon 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at City Council Building.
“It is for them to be aware and ensure that their meat suppliers have meat inspection certificates, and that their raw food came from authorized establishments,” Tellano said.
She said that it has long been part of the plan to conduct meat and fish handling for different hotel establishments, food chains, hospitals and infirmaries, catering services and other channels, but budget constraints shelved this.
“Karon ra ‘ni kay nadagdagan ang budget (It is conducted now because we got additional budget),” Tellano said.
She said Wednesday morning that they have invited 50 participants to come in the seminar.
She said another meat handling seminar for the same audience would be conducted this November 18.
