Mobilising the informal meat trade


On Wednesday, 11 May 2011, the Health Services Department of the Cape Winelands District Municipality donated mobile working stations to the Health and Hygiene Improvement Project of the informal meat trading industry in Paarl at Mbekweni Community Hall.


This project focuses on the development and production of mobile working stations for informal traders. The working stations are donated annually to the vendors in the interest of safe and healthy food reaching the customers.    
Handing over these working stations, Councillor Smith, the CWDM’s Portfolio Holder for Community & Developmental Services, said that the mobile working units will address the needs of the informal meat traders, whilst simultaneously promoting the safe and hygienic handling of meat.
“We want to create a healthy business environment in the informal meat trading industry, and we believe that these working units will help to create awareness about health and hygiene in our communities, thereby preventing germs that cause illnesses,” said Councillor Smith.
