Importation of Slaughtered Cow Meet, Is It Prohibited in Nigeria
I’m in the process of importing slaughter Cow meet directly from the abattoir in Chad to 9ja. The products (fresh meat) will then be hanged-up on a cool refregerator cargo flight to meet the storage temperature, pls check the abattoir picture from NAGARI GROUP:
On arrival the meat will be transferred to a refrigerated truck for transportation and direct to the storage.
Please, inform me if this is not one of the prohibited goods and if its possible and i would love to discuss more with you.
I don’t think that is legally allowed because it comes with a lot dangers. The meat could be contaminated before it gets to your destination.
