Illegal Meat Found in Batam Markets

BATAM - Batam KP2K (Fisheries,Livestock and Forestry Department) is beginning surprise inspections as a reaction public statements about the amount of illegal meat being sold in Batam. Raids are being held a number of markets such as Aviari Market in Batu Aji, as well as markets in Jodoh and Penuin.

"Many of the reports we have received, involved illegal meat from India, and organ meats such as lung from Brazil which came through Malaysia, we will continue to hold surprise inspections" said Head of KP2K Batam, Sri Yunelli, in Sekupang on Wednesday (11 / 8).

Nelli (Ms. Yenelli) feels that the illegal meat is entering through many of the smaller ports (pelabuhan tikus) that dot KERRI and is covertly circulated to several markets and restaurants. "We will also be checking some restaurants," she added

Nelli said the Indian Alana brand meat is prohibited in Batam because foot and mouth disease is endemic to India. "Currently we only import meat from New Zealand and Australia, as well as some of the regions in Brazil. Currently Brazil is free foot and mouth disease,"

The meat importers in Batam are also urged not to 'flirt with' illegal meat because meat import quotas are insufficient. "No one should circumvent the rules. We also appeal to the importers to inform us about any issues and quota data, so that we can make policy," says Nelli.

In addition, Nelli said that Batam does have a yearly shortage of beef. According to data gathered by the KP2K, based on population, Batam needs imports of 5000 tonnes of frozen meat per year.

"This is why we have to report to the Government and also coordinate with meat importers because if this amount is not met, even fresh meat imported from other regions such as Lampung and Central Java may not be sufficient," Nelli stated.
