THE University for Development Studies (UDS) is to establish an "ultra-modern meat-processing laboratory" at its Animal Science Department of the Faculty of Agriculture. The laboratory will be operating on commercial basis, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. John B.K. Kaburise, announced at the sixth congregation of the university in Tamale at the weekend. He said plans were far advanced for the project to take off with a credit facility by the National Investment Bank.

Prof. Kaburise said the decision to establish the laboratory followed consumers complaints that meat and meat products in the northern part of the country were not handled hygienically.

He hoped that the laboratory would satisfy the demand of consumers for wholesome meat while enabling the university to offer practical training to students.

He also indicated that it could generate income for the university as well as reduce the suffering of cattle farmers in its catchment areas.
